Bike is a show peice to me,
A rough estamate on price?

I'd gladly pay about 500$.
Of course, i'm also an idiot, so that may be way more or way less than its actually "worth".

It would probably get $600-700 on ebay.

If you look on Ebay, similar machines are being offered for more than $1000.00 and the Pinarello, with full Campy SR should fetch that and considerably more, even in Toronto. That said, you might have to be patient to get that kind of money.
So, list your bicycle on Craigslist for whatever you feel it to be worth, assuming you wish to sell it. But, even more important, list the bicycle on Ebay and ensure your listing is international. There are buyers all over the planet who will not hesitate to drop a grand and a lot more for a special bicycle and the Pinarello does qualify, in my opinion.
All that said, at the end of the day, it is almost impossible to guess at Vintage Bicycle Value (http://www.mytenspeeds.com/My_TenSpeeds_1/FREE_SITE_VALUE/VALUE_1_Start.htm). I have sold identical bicycles, in similar condition for between $180.00 USD and $1,200.00 USD. The same bike - how does one predict that kind of spread but it does happen.
