00/01 Trek 5200 to resell

Found a 2000 or 2001 (unlisted, but seller says bike has original Rolf Vector wheels which were only available those two years) Trek 5200 54cm for sale locally for $300. I have seen some similar bikes go for between 850-1200 in the past few years on for sale threads I found on google. I have been toying with the idea of buying this bike to ride around for a few weeks and then post back for sale on craigslist for about $500 to make a a quick profit.

Is that a good price? Anyone have thoughts or guidance? Thanks guys.

Assuming no damage, that's a deal.

Yeah, at $300 it is definitely flip material assuming everything is all there and not trashed.
