Agree with above. It is a long-standing rule of thumb that something's true worth 'what the market is prepared to pay'. And therein lies the difference: market worth(value) and what it is worth to us (the seller).

Perhaps it is common for us to think that our bike is better than everyone else's or the 'best available' as is often quoted, and therefore we attach a premium to it. However, if that bike IS the best available and priced accordingly, then there is a flow-on by other sellers thinking that their pile of crap is of equivalent value. I see steadily increasing values in UK, and I suspect Oz and USA are the same. But some of the current sellers are total dreamers. We have some 'average' F4 750s priced at 9,000 (AU$16,600) which is far more than a good 1000R.

Some of us will pay over the odds for a good bike, but we won't be ripped off or contribute to a speculator's profit. So you are completely correct @ogrilp400 ; if a person is keen to sell he will price it attractively, otherwise he will be one of the many, 'I'll try to make money, if it sells, it sells,' brigade.

As a side issue, I would be snapping up a 2000 mint F4 for $7,000! (There's ALWAYS room for another bike)
