C'dale R300 (199?) worth $100?

Owner claims its well taken care of, but I haven't seen it in person. Where does the R300 lies on Cannondale's hiearchy?
As always......Thanks in advance!

Always depends on region but in my parts, most definitely its worth $100

I'm a fan of the 90s cantilevered dropout frames too
It was most likely the lowest end of their "racing" bike line but I'm sure it still has quality stuff, maybe RSX?

As long as the integrity of the frame is in good shape (no dents, gouges, dimples, creases, etc.), yes it's worth that. Good luck!

Definitely worth it. Looks a bit bigger than 54 to me, though.

If it makes you feel any better, I paid $100 for just a C'dale frame!
(and the stem is corrosion welded into the steer tube)

It looks like a 58 cm frame. I'd say it's worth $100. I sold an old tattered R600 with downtube shifters and moustache bars for $150. I wish I kept it as it was a great 'beater' bike. It rode nicely, handled well and accelerated like stink. And it was comfy! The newer R400 I had was harsh in contrast.
