Should I buy this Norco as a stop gap?

Now that I've basically finished the Miele, I'm on the hot lookout for a road bike for me and I need a really little frame. I looked at a Motobecane Grand Sprint yesterday (low end looking, overpriced) which was my size, but it was $150 which it wasn't worth.

There's this bike - looks like a Norco Monterey for only $40, although it's been got at - need to change the bars, add a brake caliper, levers. But it looks like my size.

Is it a good enough bike to grab and use until something more compelling comes along or should I just hold on? Geometry looks quite strange.

I have narrowed down my wants on a road bike to be: 48cm, 80s, indexed shifting, nice rims, and chrome-y
