Default How high should I go?

I'm doing well on my 61XLH project. I now have about 85% of the parts I need for a complete restoration. I may have even located both of the main pieces to a toolbox/spark coil cover as well as a few other "hens teeth."

My biggest problem now is a year-appropriate frame. In part because of all the help from forum members, I know exactly what I need and how to identify it. What I don't know is how much I should pay.

So here's my totally subjective question. I may have located am unmolested XLH frame (waiting for confirmation on exact year), but they want almost eight-hundred for it, including shipping. Is this too much to pay? Chime in with your opinions, informed or not. I'd like to know what you think.
