Help with cannondale identity

I ended up making a trade last week and ended up with what the original owner said was a cannondale criterium frame bike from the late 80's. It's obviously aluminum as the frame has been stripped and somewhat polished. Most of the componants are campagnolo except the FD and the headset which is shimano 600. It came with a set of campy ergo shifters but I have one of them being rebuilt so put on the suntour bar ends for the time being. Anybody have any other info that is obvious from the pictures?

Another question is value which I know depends on market and what one is willing to pay. I'm in a good bike locality and consistantly sell 10 speed fuji, raleigh, schwinn, etc bikes in the $125-$150 range. With that in mind, what would be a reasonable asking price for the cannondale with the ergo shifters when I get them back?

check under the chainstay for a serial number, it will likely have the build year as the first 2 digits (I *think*) such as "84--------"

The serial number is as follows;
First 2 digits are the frame size
The next 6 digits are the date made
The last 3 digits are the frame number made that day

ie; my '86 SM700 serial # is 20032686105
20" frame Yours will be in cm's as it's a road bike
Made March 26th, 1986
Frame 105 that day
