thats the RWHS site You are looking at
their bikes are all restored and even if they look great they are way overpriced but they somehow allways manage to sell them

and there are no unused Zeds being shipped into the UK in crates
the last uncrated Zed found was a Z1000 and it had been stored in a damp shed so it was rotten

The z900 from 76 was a UK bike, the bike your man is floggin has a US spec rear mudgard and saddle plus orange reflectors which are only on the KZ model from across the pond. Now if that yoke was a 72-75 Z1 in that nick with all matching numbers including the pipes maybe 9k .......IMO....

Problem is, fella's think that if it costs €8 or €9K to restore, then that's what it's worth on the open market. Unfortunately, it doesn't work that way as I explained a while back to a lad selling a freshly restored XT500 that he was asking €5K for.

It's worth what someone is willing to pay for it.

So if you have a bike on the market for 9000, drop the price to 7000 "2k UNDER MARKET VALUE" and after 12 months of not selling the yoke i offer you 5000, thats the exact market value.

Cause it ain't worth a pack of Rancheros until someone offers you one for it.

Re: cuckoo land
 
lets see yer views on this folks




first the last of the z9s were so much better than the first to look at,ride and handle,
so why is the 72 model worth more u might ask lol,well this is where the muppets come into play with their over evaluations of them for the year or the model,

owning a bike be it vintage or newer is about riding the damn thing correct me if im wrong.

i know a few of these muppets who have 5 or 6 vintage bikes that have not seen daylight for years incase they get a chip on the paint or have to wash them after a ride,i for the love of me cant get this ,im riding 26 years this year and have often had a few bikes at one time and would love to own loads more if funds wud allow but not for viewing and polishing and telling people how much one model similar fetched 10k or more a bike is for riding ?,

am i missing something here ?
