How could ANY bike that is in decent shape not be worth replacing consumables and putting on a seat and pedals?

Frankly, I can't think of any non-*Mart bike that wouldn't be worth at least that much... especially since, as you said, he can take the seat and pedals to another bike.

The real questionable upgrades would be if you start replacing other parts... I might say no to a carbon seat post or fork on a low end bike, but in this case you aren't talking items (other than cables) that can't be used elsewhere if he decides to dump the bike tomorrow.
