Fair price for Trek 1200?

It's listed on CL as 58cm. I'm looking to replace a stolen Trek 1420 for my boyfriend, who is 5'10 and probably could actually use a 56cm and not 58... and I just graduate college and am headed to law school next year (so spending all my savings on applications) so I don't want to spend a fortune.

"I also have the computer (odometer, trip meter, average mph, mph, date, stopwatch), 5 extra tires (2 paired 1 oddball), new handlebar wraps, a small bag under the seat, and a small hand pump that clips to the frame.

I only rode the bike for two seasons and I did a minor tune-up every 100 to 250 miles and major tune-up at the beginning of each season. Compared to the 20 year old 54cm road bike I rode before this bike is amazing! It was lighter, had better stopping power, and was much faster with more speeds. It’s been stored indoors for the last 2 years. I’ve been focused on other things and have stopped cycling."

The guy, when I emailed him, told me he had someone interested in buying it for $625 but if I paid $650 and picked it up tomorrow/today he'd give it to me. I told him I could get one on ebay for ~500 but to send me pics anyway. I'm not sure he actually has someone else looking at as he just sent me the pictures and told me he's open to negotiation.
