Around $5250, I think book is around $4600 or so, but I think the little extra $$ is way worth it.

I've lusted for an RS50 for years and years now, but seeing as they aren't imported anymore and the ones out there are either mint examples that are going for $4000 or junked out former racers going fo $2500.
