Talisman prelude ( is it worth it)

Alright guys first off im going to say that im new to this kind of stuff and this will be my first bike that i restore (hopefully ill be successful)

So ive been looking around for a bike to begin with and the only one that seems to catch my eye is this Talisman prelude. The guy wants $100 for it and says all it needs is a tune up and air but since ill be adding new parts to it all I want to know if its worth the buy? being only $100 and all. And also if you can see anything wrong on the bike please leave a comment.

Thanks

Looks like a low end entry lever road bike from the 80's. I wouldn't pay $100 for it. If I am desperate and that's the only bike available, then may be I will offer $50 or ride the bus.
