IS this a good deal?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

For $650 ?? Sounds fair.
Bikes: Old steel race bikes, old Cannondale race bikes, less old Cannondale race bike, crappy old mtn bike.

I would post this over in classic and vintage for a more reasonable response.

I wouldn't pay $650 for it but I don't really want a bike that old...has no value to me. If you are looking for a classic bike them...well not being into the classics I have no clue really...ask in C&V.

Are you looking for a vintage racer, or are you looking to get into normal cycling? You'd probably have a better time buying a new bike.

If by "normal cycling" you mean the imaginary world of the Road Cycling forum, that may be correct. If by normal, you mean what most people do, you are way off base.
