1986 Dave Scott Ironman bike

This bike is evidently in prime condition (never been wrecked, never dropped, always kept inside, ect) as in the paint is still perfect and all the original parts are still on the bike (the tires were replaced). I can't tell if it's a master or an expert but I want to know what these bikes go for in great condition and all original parts. I've been looking for a road bike and just want to see what they're worth and how much I should spend on one. The guy wants it for $350. Is this a good deal?

Heres a few small but fairly useful photos:

Appreciate it!

Seems a bit high to me but not outrageously so, assuming no unrevealed issues.

I agree on the price seeming a little high. I'm going to try to get it down to $300 or so.

In '86 the bikes were always 600, so there was no "Expert"/ "Master" designations.

Price seems a bit high for me, too, but price is all dependent on condition.

I didn't know they had that paint scheme in '86, but the components look like either that or an '85. (Don't know paint scheme for those)

I'd be interested to know what part of the country the bike is being sold in? I agree that the Ironman is a nice bike, but 350 seems on the high end of the price range. The seller just might get it in the SF Bay Area which is generally 25-50 more for a similar bike in other parts of the country. 275-300 would seem more in-line to me. However; if the bike fits and you want to keep and enjoy it, it might be worth the price. Tange 1 frame and 600 components (I believe) are a nice combination.

It's being sold in Austin Texas. I think i'm going to go look at it tomorrow and get on it and see if it fits me well and go from there. Though again i'm going to try and get the price down a little bit at least because no matter what it's a little out of the price range that I first intended to spend.
