motobecane super touring

Hey first time buying a used bike. I found someone selling this bike for $170. No year, but frame size is a match. Is this a fair price, or could I negotiate to lower it further?

The bike seems clean and in good shape. Looks to be late 70's and basically original with good paint. The price is very fair if the bike has no major issues.
