Tough question - today the frame & fork sell new are beween $1,800 and $1,900 - if you order directly from Waterford no discount. You see them occasionally new from dealers on Ebay and used from individuals, but not that often and not in common sizes. Make sure it's the right size because of the sloping top tube. Alot depends if you want a great deal or just a good deal. I bought mine new on ebay in 2002/2003 it was new but a 1998 frame from a bike show and Waterford had just put into storage.It was a Ultegra triple - tubus rear rack, Ultegra 36 hole hubs - the dealer and I negoiated to switch rear Ultegra der amd cassette out to XT and Cassette. It had know seatpost - price was $1,200 plus shipping.
I would have considered this a screamiming deal until I bought a Waterford 22 framewith a Chris King Headset for $400 this summer. By the way I find that Waterford Touch up paint does wonders to make their frames look new.
In my opinion
Low end ($800-$1,000)
high end ($1.400 - $1,600)
Middle of the road $1,200
Alot depends on condition - make sure the frame is straight - and parts - what you are describing is not to fancy and I suspect you will be switching come of it out in short order. By the way I am not a fan of these rims based some recent experiences
