Full Carbon DuraAce Bike on Ebay for 700$, is this scam?

Notices
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

Full Carbon DuraAce Bike on Ebay for 700$, is this scam?

2007 Jamis Xenith frame, dura-ace crank, brakes and RD. Ksyrium SL wheels, all for 700$ + 120$ shipping. Is this for reals? Seller seems to get a good rating, though..

That's just the starting bid, doesn't mean that it is going to sell for $700. Plus, it is six year old dura ace.

It'll be a couple hundred dollars higher than that when the listing ends in 2 days.

I have had to look up a few of my older bikes, it happens.

Correct. It's an auction with almost 3 days left. The serious bidders usually show up in the last 5 minutes.
