The 02s are pretty desirable b/c they don't have those grabby Servo Brakes (but it won't be as smooth as the twin spark later models). $7500 seems a bit high. Without having seen/ridden the bike...

1200gs

It sounds like you got a screaming deal in 08! What would be a fair price for the 1200? It seems competitively priced compared to what I see for sale in the Marketplace and on Craigslist.
