This all means really nothing since his views are completely subjective. I don't think a Crumar Spirit should be worth 2,500 but they are fetching that.
I am lucky that I have an 80. I was lucky to know a local person who had one and it was good timing. I was also lucky to get it at a VERY reasonable price. Since then the prices have gone sorta cockamamy on them. Whether or not it is worth the price they go for is also completely subjective for you. To someone an 80 might be worth 8,000. That price for one is not unreasonable either since I've seen several go for around that.
This all being said, the prices are VERY dependent on things like condition. One that needs some work you might find for $2,500-3-something, where as a fully working on in a city might fetch $8000 (since you might not need to ship it)
