This is probably a bike I'll actually pull the trigger on. It's a Cannondale, probably 1996.
RD: Campy Triple Racing
FD: Campy Racing T
Shifters: Veloce downtubes
Everything's in fair condition, but it looks like all the components have been swapped out from Shimano. What's a fair price for this? I saw a Diamondback Podium 2.0 with Mirage components go for $300 and was advised to get that earlier, but that was sold. Veloce is a step up from Mirage, but I'm not sure of the other components. Also, wheels are not as valuable on this as they were on the Podium.

Go get it. $225 would be a steal.
That's not down tube shifters. They are Ergo shifters. $300 is pretty good deal for 2.8 series C'dale with Campy components. On 2.8 and 3.0 series frame, check for crack inside bottom of the seat stays.192682192683

Thanks guys. Gonna pick it up now. Be back with pics in a couple hours.

Scratch that...I'll post pics tomorrow. Some more details in the meantime: this bike was just custom built with miscellaneous parts. Non-standard fork (it's black) and handlebars, Athena brakes. I wonder how much this cost to build. I paid $230 because I didn't have a 5 on me. Felt worth it.

I'm trying to ID an R111 bike with Shimano 600 groupo, STI 8 speed, Subone fork. Any suggestions?

1994 R900? (http://www.scribd.com/doc/29809157/1994-Cannondale-Bicycle-Catalog)
What's the r111 about? Tubing?

R111 is on top tube. It is polished aluminum, beefy down tube.
Closest match I've found is '94 R900 (2.8 frame, Sub One fork, Mavis Open 4CD rims), but the model in catalogue has different shifter/derailleurs (Ultegra).
Also, rear dropouts are cantilevered but integral with frame (they don't look to be replaceable).
Sent frame #s etc. to Cannondale, but don't expect to hear from them.
Trying to see what good offering price is, so I can sell it & donate proceeds to charity.
