Schwinn typhoon Bike

I'm looking to buy a bike, it would be my first time actually buying a bike myself...
Is this bike worth the money?... Oh, and if you can guesstimate, how tall and short of a person can ride this bike, thanks...

No, I think it's way overpriced. I sold one in slightly worse condition for about $125 a couple of years ago, and I thought that was an optimistic price.

Wouldn't go more than $75 max. Pretty pedestrian as far as Schwinns go. Looks like it has painted rims rather than chrome.
