That bike looks like it is clean and in nice shape. Well, it would be if was a full picture.
And, it sounds like the person didn't skimp. A good quality seat, and tires.

The cyclocross/touring style bikes are popular now. I wouldn't be surprised if it hit $300 to $500.

I think $300 is low for Boston and $500 would not be a bad price. It would not surprise me if it sold north of that.

That is top end vintage touring bike and it is in great shape.

I agree, at $300 you should be in your car already. $500 is realistic. Some might hope for $750. Top of the line touring model, which got better throughout. the 1980s and into the early 1990s.
