@ olgry1 - Go for it, Bro... Get what makes you happy!!
An item is worth what someone will pay for it. Without coloring our responses with personal opinion, this statement is absolutely, irrefutably true.
As an example, I had a member on here refurb my 2000 12 at some expense & felt like it was a good investment. I could have probably bought another 12 for about the same money, but that's not what I chose to do with my money.

Don't get me wrong here fellas...it's not the bike(s) I hold issue with....
It's the fact that folks try to pass off junker high mileage bikes for ungodly money, and that there are folks who don't know any better spending this on these bikes. This has created an environment where people are "cashing in" on the economy and screwin folks. AND, any bike almost 30 years old...well...if someone is willing to pay it, that's their gig I spose, but it's paying that price that keeps this craziness alive.
If that's the case, I'm going to sell my 12R when it gets to 28 years old for what it listed for off the showroom floor!
Na. I would, but I know actual value is far lower than that. I'm not in the business of screwin folks...without vaseline anyways...

I may be buying what appears to be a pristine example of what may be a classic bike in the future. A bike which brings back a number of fond memories and one that may appreciate in value with time.
I agree that $5K is too much but closer to $4k may be realistic...... have to look at and see how motivated the buyer is.

After seeing your bike at DG it was money very well spent.

I said it before and I'll say it again about these bikes... they look like a damn 500r on crack!

New purchase price in 1962: Apprpox. $18,000.00 USD
Recent sale (in GB): > $30,000,000 USD equivalent
Stuff is worth what the buyer thinks it's worth. It is the responsibility of the buyer to determine the value (to him), & negotiate correspondingly. How else can you explain people buying Comic-Con paraphernalia @ the show & doubling/tripling their money overnight?
Is this legitimate? Is it fair? Does it make sense? ...Not for me to say; BUT if someone wants to buy my limited edition Return of the Jedi in Death Star packaging for $1000.00 I'm gonna hafta let it go...
