Just a word of advice to add in. If tires are yucky, that is a $50.00 expenditure for decent ones to replace. Tires and wheels make the difference with older bikes.

You might want to increase your budget by the $50 for "tricking out" and see if $175-200 gets you something ready to go.

I notice there is a vintage 60cm Bottechia for sale on there.

And a larger Trek

And my choice for your height/inseam - 58cm, brifters. $175

Lots of choices down here in Charleston...
