129.

20 multiples of 5 in each 100 number set (5,10,15...90,95,100)
= 20(10)

subtract 5 from each set that are multiples of 4 (20,40,60,80,100) <-- takes care of 1000 since its "less than 1000"

so now its 15(10).

subtract 21 for all the multiples of 7 (manually crunched it, didn't double count the multiples of 4 already subtracted).

=150 - 21 = 129

Took about 3 minutes with the manual number crunching of multiples of 7 that didnt double dip the fours.
