No, that's insane, there's a similar one (albeit in worse shape) in Binghamton/Elmira for $200 that I thought was ambitious.

+1. The asking price is very ambitious, especially this time of year, in a market like Rochester. However, I do like the color co-ordinated saddle and bar tape.

That bike was posted on C&V over in the Centurion section not long ago and received some very positive feedback.
Maybe a little steep for Rochester, but that's pretty much what I charge (and get) for a very nice original-ish bike that's received a total refurb here in the DC area.
If it was indeed totally dismantled, polished, re-greased, adjusted, etc. the seller put a lot of time and effort into it.
However, to T-Mar's point, this time of year not much is selling so I'm building and storing for April.

It does look nice, they certainly did a good job cleaning it up. Except for the stupid routing of the rear brake cable, but that is easy enough to fix by removing the seatpost quick.

Still, $600 is waaaaay too much for this bike. Even if it was NOS.

The bar tape was wrapped top down. What a waste of a perfectly good fade.
