I'm not defending the $6900 asking price, as I'm not the one who put it up for sale, but you also have to realize there's no way you can duplicate it for anywhere near this amount. Let's see...
Keihin FCR's: ~$1000
Ti axles/bolts/nuts: ~$1500
Magnesium wheels: ~$2000
Custom rearsets: ~$500
Fox shock: ~$500
USD forks/resprung/revalve: ???
Spondon Engineering swingarm: ???
Limited 750 motor: ???
Yoshimura billet triple clamp: ???
Yoshimura Tornado Aluminum tank: No longer available
and other stuff I don't remember...
If I added up the amount of $ that I've spend on my bike I'm pretty sure it would be over $6900, and my bike is no where near as nice as this one. Personally, after modifying my own bike, if I had to start all over again I'd pay more to get a bike that already has the trick parts on it and the bugs worked out than a cheap bike and then proceed to spend an obscene amount of $ on it "to make it better."
