Those pedals are awful. I've got a problem with a seller putting that kind of junk on the bike. I would rather see it without pedals. Leaves a buyer with the impression of poorly maintained/neglected/ignored. Paint looks chipped up/scraped up some. It really depends on condition and what you want to do with it. Parted out, it could bring more. Its a huge frame size (I'd guess 25 inch), and I have to say, the fork looks bent. (Probably just the angle on the pic, but I would check it closely).
If the bike fits, looks good in person and is ready to ride, $250 is fine. But the picture looks more like a project, a "before" picture, and the price is not in project territory, but just about full market around here.
I really like the Columbus Tenax Schwinns. I've had a couple of Preludes and a Tempo.
