At $250, its a buy for me. You get one of the best '80's touring frames made, and you don't have to worry about scratching it.
Parts are mix, but you're going to make changes to suit your tastes anyway, so is it really a bad thing?
I'd pull it apart and go through all the bearings, and replace all consumables. If you're keeping this and not flipping, you'll be fine with the investment.
Those brakes on that frame will be able to take a 700c wheel if you decide to go that route in the future.
This if one of those framesets that people undervalue when they're looking to buy, and overvalue when they're looking to sell. At $250 this one appears to be priced correctly. There looks to be no structural issues with it.
