And a Raleigh Touring 14 - $125, looks rough, I have contacted the seller but no reply yet. Front wheel doesn't look original.

And this one which is cost really high, and there seems to be a weird mix of Suntour and Campy components.

Definitely not a mountain bike. Looks more like a Raleigh Technium framed bike. Whatever it is, you can't go wrong for $25. Looks like it has a Blackburn rack and Shimano Light Action SIS bits.

Every time I see I see the head tube/front fork at a different angle than the seat tube I immediately think front end damage. But who knows it could the camera angle and you can't lose for $25

Very nice bike, and notice the Campy Delta stuff, very nice components but the springs inside the brakes tended to be a bit fragile and there are no longer replacement springs for those if they fail, and they were heavy. I kind of wish they would reissue those but make them lighter and more dependable just for fun because I thought they were the best looking brake ever made, but this sort of stuff wouldn't make Campy much profit. Is the bike worth $1000? Just the components alone would make it worth that, so I would say yeah, someone needs to grab that.

I don't like the black stem, I highly doubt that was the original stem but someone could find the original stem with some research.

I'm not sure why the seller couldn't wait another few months for the Pantani documentary to come out. That's when you sell something like this. Nobody, other than us bicycle fiends, knows who he is. Just ask Senna.

Multiple Craigslists posts all over the country is usually a sure sign of a scammer. I can understand muliple posts in the same geographical area but when they are all over the county it's a scam. I'm sure if you looked at a global Craigslist search engine (www.craigfind.com) it may pop up in many more places. I'd be super cautious.

And that price. $350 for such a nice bike? I just flagged all three (Vancouver, Victoria, St. Louis) and replied to the Vancouver ad asking why it's for sale in St. Louis as well.
