    There was an original one that went for $300 here not too long back.

    Statistically, somone is more nuts than he is and may actually buy it at that price. He may have a winning lottery ticket this weekend too....

    I sold my semi clean original one for around 375.00 in Dallas and I thought that was a fair price.For that price I would expect a late model Sti group and carbon everything.

    I owned a 80s Cannondale 3.0

    Boy was I glad when I replaced it.

    I kept a few parts, and gave the frame and most of it
    to the mechanic as a tip.

    If I was to price that bike, I'd say $100.
    But I wouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole.

    Dang, I should put my 105 carbon Roubaix up for 900 bucks. It will seem like such a bargain in comparison.

    You mean mine...

    Yes. He is crazy. I really hope it's not the one that Zach and I had. That would be sad.

    Not clear if the seller is crazy---but clearly a buyer at that price would be crazy or otherwise impaired.
