Mid 90s (?) Trek 2300 CF composite

Could use some help here, vintage gurus. Looking at this Trek bike going for $200. All original Ultegra parts, rims were changed out, though. I'd have to have family pick it up for me as I'm not in my hometown area anymore. I asked the seller for more close-up pictures to check it all out. Is this too good to be true for this carbon fiber composite classic?

I'm not a hardcore rider at all so I don't mind the DT shifters (or replacing them in the future), but I am looking for longevity in any vintage bike I buy. Thanks for any input y'all might have!

I think you'd be just fine at $200, assuming no surprises - stuck stem or seatpost, frame damage, or the like.

Early carbon composite bikes with aluminum lugs like this one are decent rides. Perhaps a bit heavy by today's standards, but you could do a lot worse for $200.

Can't quite tell - is that a 105 rear derailleur? If it is, and a 7-speed, there exists the possibility of fitting it with brifters: Shimano RSX with the blue decals (black decals were 8-speed), or Sora 7-speed.
