How much should I pay for this?
My current commuting bike is possibly going to need some expensive repairs and since I want to get a road bike anyway (currently on dept. store mountain bike) I might rather just get another bike than pay for fixing this.
Anyway based on the info in the post, what's the upper limit of how much I should pay for this?
Once I contact the guy and get some more specs I'll post them as well.
Waaaaay less. Old road bikes are a dime a dozen. That bike is worth maybe $25.00. It was a lower end bike when it was new and consequently has no collector value. The stuff on it is marginal for real riding.

So there you are: 3 greatly different opinions.

Still if I can't get him down to a reasonable price then eff it
