1995 bianchi veloce

I'm looking into buying a 1995 Bianchi Veloce on CL. I'll see the bike and give it a test ride tomorrow. The add states that the bike has few miles on it, is in mint condition and has all the original equipment (Campy Veloce brakes, derailleurs, crankset, Mavic rims, etc). From what I've researched seems like a really solid bike. Assuming fit is good, and bike is in top condition, is the $500 the owner is asking a decent price? Any suggestions on judging the condition of the bike (ie pitfalls of used bikes to look out for)? I feel fairly confident in my ability to judge the fit of a bike and workability of the components, but am more concerned about how to judge the price of 15 year old bike. I can give more info after I see the bike tomorrow. Thanks.
