That bike might get close to $500 if it were in Toronto, but if you're in the states, where demand for Miele bike is pretty low, I'd offer $350 and see what happens. That model does not command $500.

Are you a welder?

OP - also take a look at Marinoni: www.marinoni.qc.ca. You should be able to snag a Columbus Spirit-based Piuma with a fork for around $900. They're made in Quebec, Canada, so I...

Very classy build, but I would remove the pump band, because it's guaranteed to ruin the paint.

I would argue that Campagnolo has never even approached ubiquity in North America. Others have stated various reasons, and I essentially think it comes down to lack of OE distribution. Campy likely...

$1650 or so for an S3 frame and Alpha Q for from Hugh @ True North Cycles. Wait was around four months, IIRC.

7900 looks like arse. Shimano should just do a re-issue of 7800 with hidden cables and be done with it.

Could've gotten them for less with better hubs and your choice of spokes, FWIW.
