Re: 2001 929RR for $7250 firm: sound OK?
I just bought an 01 with Lindemann forks, ohlins shock, attack rearsets and a jardine, 14K miles, down once at very low speed (claimed to be and looks to be under 10mph) for $5400. The price you're being asked is way too much -- if 954s are going for $6500, I wouldn't pay anything over $6000, and probably more between $5500 and $6000.
And why are 929s worth so little? They are, as of a month from now, third generation bikes in a bad economy in the winter. Note what happened to VFRs after the 02s came out -- prices dropped through the floor overnight, and are now fully $1500 below blue book. There has been some recovery in the VFR market because the 02 has not proved so popular over time, but that is not a problem in the 954 and presumably 1000 case.
