A couple years ago a guy here was trying to sell a Gamma in boxes for about $15kUS, $9k for a clean one seems like quite a drop. We don't get large estate/collector bike auctions here so I don't have a real grasp on pricing but it appears to me that the market is softening for a lot of stuff.
I remember this one on ebay about 3 years ago. It was in LA somewhere and around $4000 & make offer. I was almost going to get it but aside from the fact I can't really get in that position for long, there was another reason why I didn't..... like it hasn't ran in awhile or didn't have title or was leaking something.....something like that. I remember it had a rare, special rear shock. Selling for $8000.....somebody made a little or broke even on it.
I picked up a used KLR650 to add to my fleet and replace my old 93 DR650. I got a really good deal from the original owner up in San Francisco. I purchased this for a couple of reasons... First... Me and my son want to do some adventure riding. He's going to pick up a KLR himself and sort it...
