Prices vary wildly by market. Here in Toronto, it would go for $600-$700 in fully tuned condition. I'm assuming the paint is good and everything works well.

Thought the original came with shimano n600

I prefer to be original . If I wanted campy parts I have 4 bikes out of 14 to choose from in 87.

Our Dollar is no longer at par, so half of that is exchange rate. The wheels not matching could be fixed, the front wheel looks to be original, and I paid $150 not that long ago for a 7 speed wheelset with that rim and Shimano hubs.

I'd much rather have the Shimano 600 SIS set on my bike than the Quattro Suntour set on some Bianchis.

Thanks for the reply . The only non original thing is that back wheel. I'm in Vancouver Canada

Wheels that don't match on a higher dollar bike is more troubling. Picky buyers expect them to match. Buyers that don't care tend to not buy in this price range.
thanks for your reply . i just wanted to know if the seller was in the ball park. im not a collector i just like and can afford nice things .
