wow, bargain rumble, looks very nice too, if it needs it there is a very good article about cleaning up chrome in the bmx section.
the shimano road food chain is...
Ultegra SL - a recent thing where most the components were ultegra painted differently.
So think of 105 as Deore LX - very decent kit with the same design as the higher end stuff but bit little heavier.
Only warning I have is that the modern 105 5600 levers had issues in the early days (the front brifter that could be used on doubles or triples, it frequently broke, look for double or triple only) but this might not affect you.
Cheers, I'll wait and see how I feel about it when it gets here but I might even go SS/fixie, if I can get over the hipster trendy element. The brakes & levers arrived today, not STI as I'd thought but still in very good nick for £9.
Looking forward to getting the chrome shining again too!
