Tange Infinity frame is pretty decent, and paint looks good. Shimano Exage is basically entry level. So you have low end components on a mid level frame.
Bike looks dirty to me, probably needs new tires, rim looks pretty worn with dings, nicks and scrapes (still usable). I don't like the looks of that tire bead in the one close up pic. Probably just a flat tire that he rotated before taking a pic. New tires will cure that problem.
If you need the saddle that high, then the frame is too small for you.
$250 is way too much around here. As is, $100 to $150 (that would be pushing it). Fully rehabbed and ready to ride with fresh tires, spotless and so on, maybe $200. I sold a very similar bike, similar components, with a better name for $200, in ready to ride, spotless condition, this past riding season.
