Thoughts on these bikes?fsu_surfer

I have been looking for a entry-level used bike and have found three in my price/component range. Could you guys give me some feedback on the different bike's components/tires/etc... Also these are the "exact" classified's, so what should I ask them when talking about purchasing? I am wondering this b/c they don't list all of the parts, (I looked under "complete road bikes") maybe they are missing certain parts, ie. pedals, shifters, etc?

92' Puch Mistral
Frame- Columbus SLX. Fork- Bianchi. Bar- Cinelli 64-62.
Stem- Nitto Dynamic (90 degree). Headset- Shimano 600.
Front Der- Campy. Rear der- Shimano 600 SIS (12 spd)
Brakes, Shifters, Cranks- Shimano 600
Pedals- Look clip-ins. Computer-Cateye.

88' Masi Gran Corsa
Columbus motor tubing. Combination DA/105 components. Downtube shifting. Ambrosio stem/handle bars. Mavic rims. Shimano hubs. Look pedals.

Cannondale SR 800 (yr?)
Ultegra 600 rear/105 front der, brakes, headset,rear hub,cassestte,bb. RSX STI levers, crank.
Cinelli bars, stem, ultralight seatpost. Selle Italia Trans Am saddle. Zip carbon front hub laced to Sun MEI4A rims. Michelin Axial Pro tirs. Xtra wheelset included.

All of the bikes are in a similar price range and in my size. I am new to cycling and in need of a good bike to have fun on, get a good workout, etc. Any thoughts will be greatly appreciated.
