slash2 question

Hello all,

Almost new to me will be a 1967 r50/2 with 52k miles condition good with some scrapes, no rust but runs with low compression between 65-72 psi per cylinder. Previous owner (77yrs. old) doesn't remember if slingers were done so that's on the list to do.
Question, can this bike run with low compression like this without tearing into it right away? I'm wanting to ride it a few miles (maybe 100 miles) to see how it rides before overhauling the engine.
Does $5k sound like a good price for this Beemer? I know that since I don't posses special tools and the time I will be ready to shell out rebuild costs for the engine.
Thanks!

Steve
