£500 for a quality repaint or you can buy a full Dorimi paintset in the G&Y (Tank, side panels, tailpiece & badges) for around a £1000.

Re: z900a4 - tyres

If you're after the full 70's experiance you can now buy copies of the original period TT100's,which are now made with modern Rubber. A H1 I used to own came with them and they performed fine although I didnt push them 'that' hard.
