I've never question or for that matter worried much about what another man does with his wallet or his toys I am much more concerned about my own garage than my neighbors. But hey different strokes for different folks. Happy building brother.
Mine was a statement nothing more. Basically meant to reflect my feelings of your direction to take your build. As long as you know a Z1B value can be upwards of $25,000 USD. I doubt that a “Resto” modification will add to that, its more likely it will take away from the value. If that’s a risk you can take on then your better off than I. Good luck and continue.
My KZ and Z1 projects are for me, value is the last thing i am concerned with, in the condition I got the Z1 i can get 10K easily as it is a 1 owner never modified and sitting in a garage since the 80's , i choose to spend my money making my old bikes new to my standard instead of spending it for big globs of plastic where you cant even see the motor hell i may buy a newer bike just to use the parts on my old school resto-whatever project. Different strokes for different folks brother.
