Did I get a good deal?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Did I get a good deal?

Bought a used bike on eBay in a frame size that fit me on Felt newer bikes, but it's my first road bike so I'm not sure if the deal was good.

2005 Felt F2C, used
Dura-ace derailleurs
Bontrager race xxx stem
FSA K-Wing bar
Full nokan brake and derailleur gold cables
SRAM Red compact crankset
SRAM Red Cassette
KMC SL90 Gold Chain
Ciamillo Light-weight brakes
Mavic Kyserium Elite wheels (unused mostly)
speedplay zero pedals
new michelin prorace tires


Got it for $1300+shipping, seems like pretty good price compared to orginal MSRP, but it's a fair bit of frakenstein so who knows, but the parts sound much better than what I was looking at in that price range new (F75 105s)

Thanks!

+1, I'll bargain heavily up till the time of purchase. After the purchase I try not to second guess myself as it does little good. If you enjoy the bike, then you've found a good deal. Congratulations BTW.
