If all it needs is tires and cables, it's not a bad deal. The Sprint was their low-end model in that period. $5 full cable set from Walmart would be great for that bike, and I'd assume repacking the hubs and bottom bracket is in order. If you ride it, that is a good price.

I picked up a 87ish Sprint from a garage sale for $5. Too much work to be worth it though. The frame was a great dark grey pearl, which I sold by itself for $15. It would have been a perfect match for honey-colored leather saddle and bar tape (imitation leather that is) and single-speed coaster brake conversion, but the timing wasn't right.
