Not a bad price, but for your consideration...
I think the $300+ worth of extras the seller quotes sounds pretty inflated... Water bottle cages, $10 each, computer $30, seat bag, $20, bar tape, $20 the rest of it of questionable value... owner had the upgrade bug... replacing items that the bike already had to save a few grams or whatever. This leaves about $200 for a seat post, seat pad, toe straps and tires...
Also, new bikes drop in value quickly just like cars. If you bought the bike new at the shop you would probably get free service for a year...
However, if the upgrades are worth something to you, then the cost isn't bad.
However, I think the LBS in my town sold OCR3's at close-out last year for $450, brand new...
