I sold a couple. One to a guildie for 20K prices were around 22-25 at the time. I sold two more at about 24K. I stopped creating them because the market had dropped and too much supply out there and demand was low. I know I was late to the party though. I made only one panther to sell. Sold for about 24K. Too little profit for the risk. I bought the onyx for 50K myself since that was cheaper than the mats.
OT: Sky Golem is still several thousand Gold Profit for maybe five Minutes of Work, if that is a problem then you have unreasonable expectations. Or maybe you are Clever girl and want to stockpile some of them for next Expansion if you think that they are undervalued at the moment.

The problem with high-price mounts is that people who are transferring servers are limited to 50k per character, so folks who are gold capped will usually buy up all the epic mounts they can on their server, since they are a relatively stable asset, and sell them. Usually they're willing to take a bit of a loss for the convenience of not having to pay 25 real-life dollars to move another 50k, hence why you see the JC panthers selling for basically the Orb prices and such. Sky Golem is just the latest mount to suffer from this, made worse by the fact that the price is not actually "fixed" since the Jards is a cheap daily cooldown.
In your case, you'd be better off selling the craft and not the finished product. People on my server are charging 8-10k for the mount and the buyer provides the Living Steel.

The price is low because alot of people are selling them.
My decision of jumping in when the market was just new, was the best. Sold 2 Sky Golems for 75k gold each, then it died down.. Now I just do trades. Basicly, give me all Ghost Iron and/or trillium to cover the craft price, and then some gold pr. cooldown (normally from 100 to 300 pr. CD). The golem is a trade off, really. If you just do the cooldown everyday (I have 5 engineers dong it) and then offer the trade off if people want it. Ask for the mats, a fee for the CD and a TIP, more simple income.
Stuff can be fixed, just get enough glue or duct tape!
Roses are red, mana is blue. Suramar Guards, Will always find you!
Had two engineers making them for day one, sold one for 100k, and one for 60k. Saw two on ah for around 40k, bought them both and flipped them for 55k. Made one more in the next cycle, because someone paid me 15k plus the mats. All told, the 195k profit out me over the gold cap, and I quit making them. My herbalist is a druid, so personally the mount is 'meh', especially now the profit margins are dwindled. I wonder if they will go back up in WoD, so you might just want to sit on one for the time being...
15k? oh my i bought it for 40k 5 month ago
It's funny how quickly the price dropped, yet the chopper mounts still go for same amount as they did back in WotLK.
I call bull on the 30-35k for the panthers, but that's what happens.
Should've got in early to sell them it simply takes 30 days where as those other mounts have expensive components that mean it wont drop below a certain price (for the most part, they have been duped a lot)
unfortunately the sky golem is easy to make because people just have to click 1 thing a day and make the piece.
Time =/= money in this case
first day I made a ton, but every 30 days since, I've sold them for sub 20k for me its an easy 80-100k a month from them (multiple engi's)
the market is flooded with those golems price drops who the hell cares you take 30 days to press 1 button and want profit out of it the latest proffs all have 553 itemlvl and and wordt nothing anymore take weeks to get the mats aswell
Same Shit Different Day
