CAD3 R1000 value inquiry?

I was wondering if a CAD3 R1000 would be worth $680? Someone is selling it at this price on craigslist. Full years set. I understand this is a 20 year old bike. This makes me question if this bike is truly worth that much? However, I also feel like $680 would not get me anything of better value if I bought a new bike from a lbs or the internet. I mean, they don't make things like they used to, right?

P.S., I know it's hard to value a a bike without pictures but apparently I need to post 10 times before I can post pics. This is why no pictures are attached.

Unless it has had a lot of upgrades, I wouldn't call this a good deal. I bought a CAAD4 (I believe to be a 2004 model) 2 years ago for $400. This last winter I did a huge rebuild to the tune of $2600ish including tools and such. At this point, I think the only things still Cannondale are the frame and fork.

Not saying it isn't a good bike, just not for that price.

My apologies in advance. Only a fool will pay 680 for that bike. Don't be a fool.

No, and Iím a Cdale fan. Truly great frames, but thatís way too much for that generation.

BTW whatís with all the asterisks and question marks? Also, this should be in Classic & Vintage whatís-it-worth requests, imho

My guess is that something got struck by the automatic censor. Is replaces prohibited words with asterisks, like when you try to post ****.

Don't worry I did not go through with the sale. The sale was in Manhattan - I owe the high price to that fact and also people will overprice anything vintage in NYC
