Older Schwinn Prelude

Hey all,

I'm selling my 1996 Trek 1220 and am looking for a backup commuter and/or bike to put on the trainer. I've been looking for a cheap option because I likely won't ride it a lot. Came across this older Schwinn Prelude for $80.00. It fits and rides well, good deal?

Yes; it's a good deal for $80, even with the added color.

It appears to be an '86 in Gunmetal.
