I bought my '00 883 Custom for $6000 and it had 2000 miles on it. I have converted it to a 1200 (S1 Lightning conversion) IMO that makes for a much better performing bike and it will be more valuable.
I dissagree about the "valuable" part. Its could be worth more than a stock 883 but not a stock 1200. Gonig into motors genaraly make a bike less valuable.
For my money 7000 is not that bad for a msrp 10,000 bike, even a 5 year old going on six, inless its in poor shape.
