The bike as is needs a full cleaning and overhaul and lots of consumable parts, basically a full teardown and rebuild. In the US, a DIY effort would be $60-$75, with decent tires. A local bike shop would charge $175-$225, plus tires.
Therefore as is, I would not offer more than $150 US, but hope to get it for less.
OA is overkill for that light rust. Lightly rub with 000 steel wool and WD40. No more rust if you keep the bike dry.
