Need help with Super Takumar lenses

I have an opportunity to buy all of the following for $100. I'm particularly interested if the lenses warrant this price. I haven't seen the lenses but let's assume they are in good condition. The camera is a 1968 Spotomatic.

● Super-Takumar f 1:1.4 50mm Lens
● Super-Takumar f 1:3.5 135 mm Lens
● Auto Chinon f 1:2.8 28 mm Lens
● Bayonet Lens Adapter for Pentax
● Sun Auto Tele-up 2x Extender

Is this a good deal? I haven't tried to negotiate (on's Craig's list) but in looking at the lens reviews for the Takumars, they look like good lenses but not sure about the Chinon or if I should pay this much. Any help is appreciated.

The 50mm is worth that on it's own

They are probably worth more than twice as much.

Thank you both for the quick response. Sounds like I should jump on them.
