another bike newb here.. centurion lemans worth 250?

Here's the CL add I'm looking at.

https://philadelphia.craigslist.org/bik/4083824627.html

Is it worth the price (I literally know nothing about what makes a bike worth a certain price). I'm looking for a road bike or commuter bike. I had an old centurion in California but had to sell it when I moved to PA. Now I'm looking for a new bike so I don't have to walk everywhere.

THANK YOU ahead of time for your help!

+1.

Good quality steel, supposedly in good condition. If it fits you and feels good, then worth it.

It has eyelets on the frame and fork for commuter gear like fenders and racks, too.

Yes considering condition and size this bike is worth the price in a major market.

Not a steal, been on the market for ten days. If you are 5'7"-5'4" I would say $200 +/- 10%.
