1993 Raleigh SP 2000

Just curious what my "new" used bike is actually worth. I've checked the bluebook, but it seems that previous owner(s) kit-bashed this one with 1000 model because it has a mix of components from both:

From 2000, Dura-Ace: shifters, crank although got to check the gears themselves, rear derailleur;
From 1000, 600 with 3-colored mark - brakes (dual pivot), front derailleur, brake levers.

Mavic wheels and didn't really check tires since I'm sure they've been swapped many times nor are the most rare component.

TIME Racing pedals w/ plate set. VeloBase.com - Component: Time Racing

Frame-mounted proprietary hand pump.

I paid 500 and everything is in perfect working condition.

$500 would be on the high end for a 22 year old bonded aluminum frame Raleigh, with a mix of high end parts. That 8 speed Dura Ace was a fine group.

I have zero confidence in Blue Book's pricing.

Makes sense. I figured without much prior knowledge, trying to haggle over ~100$ wasn't worth it when I needed a decent bike asap. As a used gear seller myself, I know that sometimes haggle is useless as well.

So overall a reasonable purchase, yea?
