I would consider that a pretty good deal for what it is… certainly better than one of those tube type C-man lathes that you see pop up all the time for around $50. Don’t sell it too short, as a lot can be done with just a little.

As for what can be mounted on it… let us know some more info. Is the spindle threaded? If so, what is the size/TPI. Does the headstock or tailstock have a taper? Maybe post a few pictures to give us a better idea of what you got. In the meantime though, throw some wood on there and start practicing! A spur drive in the headstock and a live center in the tailstock is all you need for a majority of stuff.
