What is my Serotta worth?

I bought this bike off craigslist for $150 and rode it for a while but it is just to small for me and I need a bike that is more suitable for triathlons. It is a 1999 54cm Serotta Atlanta. It has dura-ace shifters, hubs, cranks and 600 brakes and derrailleurs. The frame has some minor rust spots under the paint but is in overall pretty decent condition. I would like to get around $500 for it. Is that too much? What do you all think I could get for it on claigslist?

I think knowing your location is essential for a valuation. I know that these were made with a 531 frame earlier on, what is the tubing material? Nice lugged frame, around 20lbs or so I suspect. Other than the drop bars (maybe) and the too small size (based on the stem/seatpost ratio), this would be a perfect tri bike (for someone around 5'10".) $300-$500 is a ballpark, depending on location and condition (fresh tune up, new cables, tires, tape and tubes, all true would probably bring you close to $500 in the right place)

I am located in Tampa Florida. The frame tubing is Reynolds Colorado Concept tubing. I would love to keep it as it rides very nice but I am 6'2" and I just cannot comfortably fit on this bike.

Maybe you could arrange a trade for the frame here or on the Serotta forum: https://www.serotta.com/forum/index.php?
