softride norwester

I keep an eye out for softrides on craigslist and this one came up today. There isn't much on ebay in past sales of norwesters. One frame sold for $100 and another for about $230. Anybody know much about these and if $350 is a reasonable price for this bike?

If those are 700c I would say 300 is better but doesn't seem a bad deal if it fits. The wheels look new and there isn't much dirt on the chainrings or frame around the RD/cassette so I bet it has seen little service. If that was near me I would be considering it just a 'kit' too.

Thanks for the feedback. What does just a 'kit' mean?
