Just bought a titanium road bike for $100: it needs some help.

I saw an ad on Nextdoor for the bike. It was 1/4 mile from my house. The next thing I remember is putting on my work stand and taking things off to clean.

no labels on the frame (I'm guessing it's a 58 cm). The frame seems straight. Ultegra 6600 with ksyrium elite wheels.

the front wheel needs to be trued. It may need a new headset (it has significant play), the shifters are broken and the chain and cassette are rusted.

I'm thinking of getting dura ace 7800 shifters ($175). I think the chain, cassette and cables would cost a little over $100.

This was obviously an impulse buy and I'm now wondering if I'm spending too much on my $100 purchase.

FYI I haven't bought a bike on 15 years. My last bike was used with dura ace 7700.

Any advice is welcome
