What is a good price for an HP 8510B system?

Just now becoming interested in VNA's and looking at some 8510B systems for sale. Found one complete in its original HP rack with 500 MHz to 20 GHz test set and HP 8341B sweeper in the rack too. They want about 8000.00 dollars for it, supposed to have been checked out and in working order except missing the boot tape.

Is that an outstanding or average price for such a system w/sweep gen? So far, it looks like a great price but thought this forum would be the place to go for advice. I'm just wanting one as a hobby machine right now but hope to put it to work with a small start up RF shop someday, if I can find a real use for it as a small shop.

Been drooling over the 8510C display, but can't seem to find one at a low price yet, any suggestions for what a good price would be for one?
Any feedback appreciated.

Hope this isn't considered off topic, I mean, the purchase and price of VNA's.
