Newbie here

I have been a mtb rider my entire life, and school has pretty much reduced my biking to the point where I only bike for commute, so naturally, I decided it was time for a road bike. I found this Bottecchia https://toronto.kijiji.ca/c-buy-and-s...dIdZ205680374#on kijiji for $230. At my local vintage bike store I couldn't even find a decent frame for under 300. The kijiji Bottecchia is a 25 inch frame and I'm 6'2 1/2" inches tall and my inseam is 35". The description of the bike is there as well. Is this bike worth the $230, and would the size be suitable for me? Thanks in advance

Looks exactly like mine. Although the paint was horrible on mine, so i stripped it and it had nice chrome underneath. I would speculate the campy parts are valentino, and quite low on the campy lineup. I'm not sure on the TO market, but here in winnipeg that would be an average price for that bike. heres a good sizing chart to help you on the size.
