bridgestone 300 road bike from the late 70's?

Hi, I'm a newbie looking for advice for purchasing a new road bike to replace my somewhat heavy Takara Deluxe Touring. I'm new to bikes, so I don't really quite know which parts/frames are better than others. But I have to ride everyday rain or snow to work so I'd like an upgrade from my chunk of steel!

Somebody is selling this Bridgestone 300 lugged Japanese 12spd for $160

- 52cm made in Japan lugged 4130 cromoly frame, long dropouts, 31 inch standover, metalflake silver finish, late 70s early 80s vintage
- 12 speed suntour
- alloy wheelset with quick release front hub, newer Specialized tires
- Avocet saddle
- Zefal frame pump
- alloy bar and stem
- alloy crankset
- nice condition, ready to ride

Is it worth it? What kind of questions should I ask him when I go check it out?
