Is this 1991 Honda Nighthawk 250 worth considering as a beginner's biker?

The bike has 19,000 miles and the seller is asking $1200.
Too old? Too many miles? Other? What should I offer if it's even worth considering?
If I do go look, what are the absolute must-ask questions and procedures? I don't have any motorcycle-savvy friends to bring along. I've done some reading (Complete Idiot's Guide to Motorcycles, a surprisingly decent book for the beginner) and checked out the guide here
, but I'm still relatively clueless. I know I should run the VIN (can I do that via phone while meeting with the seller)?
I've also considered buying from a dealership (either used or new), but this seems
like an okay deal.
Halp. I have had bike fever for the past few months after getting my license and my burning desire to ride is escalating with each passing day...
