How much do you think I can get for this bike?

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

Is it just me, or do I see a complete rebuild with a custom paint job?

Not custom paint job, just kept in really really REALLY good condition. (Not on my part). "Upgraded" from 5 to 6 speed, and updated the rest.

Got a free tuneup from a LBS today. The price they said it's probably worth is a lot higher than those posted in this thread at least.

If it had horizontal drops I would convert to SS or Fixie.

As a college student, I'd much rather sell the bike and get money out of it. I'm more comfortable riding my new Jamis Satellite anyways.

It it really is in excellent condition, I'd say you could get $100-$200 for it. I know my old 1989 Centurion Ironman goes for around $250 on Ebay whenever I see them.
I love vintage road bikes from the late 80's.

In New York City, this bike would go for $175 - $300 dollars. I've seen 1970's rusted Schwinn 10 speed sell for $150.00 dollars at the 6th Avenue flea market. Too bad you're no in the neighborhood.

Oops, I didn't see the stem shifters. I would say closer to $100 then. But, you never know. There might be some collector out there who just has to have it.

Unfortunately, not everyone rides $2000 road bikes.
