Who wants to wager a beer on the final sale price. I am predicting $2400.
Not gonna bet, but I'll tell of my DR buying experience. I have that exact bike. A '99DR350SE. I bought mine from a figherfighter in Des Moines in the fall of 2011. The bike was completely stock, without a scratch, and just a tick over 5800 miles. I paid $2000 without batting an eye. Was it a steal? No. But Zooky isn't making them anymore, and I didn't have to drive 10 hours to get it.
While that bike may go for $2400, I wouldn't pay that much. I check www.bikefinds.com
almost daily, and I have spied several low-mileage '99s for sale at or below $2000.
Here's what my $2000 got me; the day I picked it up:
And @ about 11,000 ft. on a mountain in Colorado this past June:
And I just bought a nice 2000 DR650 with 10k miles for $1500, so for me, anything over $2000 for any DR is too much. But that's just me?
