1) That is a great reat full Columbus frame, definitely worth converting back into a real road bike with gears instead of a toy. At least the previous owner had the sense not to hack off the derailleur tab.
2) The paint is not that bad -- I concur with Servo888 that it can be cleaned and perhaps patched. I think repainting will lower the value of the frame, which should be of concern if it is indeed too small for you.
