Optimist? yes.
Greedy? perhaps.
Ethical? perhaps not.
Mentally ill? no idea.

Statistically, somone is more nuts than he is and may actually buy it at that price. He may have a winning lottery ticket this weekend too....

I sold my semi clean original one for around 375.00 in Dallas and I thought that was a fair price.For that price I would expect a late model Sti group and carbon everything.

I owned a 80s Cannondale 3.0

Boy was I glad when I replaced it.

I kept a few parts, and gave the frame and most of it
to the mechanic as a tip.

If I was to price that bike, I'd say $100.
But I wouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole.

Dang, I should put my 105 carbon Roubaix up for 900 bucks. It will seem like such a bargain in comparison.

You mean mine...

Yes. He is crazy. I really hope it's not the one that Zach and I had. That would be sad.

Not clear if the seller is crazy---but clearly a buyer at that price would be crazy or otherwise impaired.
