This site does not have a valuation part. As values seem to be constantly changing. But feel free to post pictures the guys will put a price on it.

Doesn't matter where they come from, they were all built in the same place, except that z900a5 . USA ones are generally a bit cheaper than a uk one, it's all down to condition really, they cost a lot to restore so buying a good one usually can work out cheaper, unless you can do a lot of the work yourself.
There's a lot of overpriced ones about , but they do turn up at reasonable prices, usually from someone on here.
Z1b, zxr750 m2, zrx1200
Z1000 (2003) lawson thingy,
Z1000 (2004) z1b lookalike ,
Z1000j lawson race bike,
Versys 1000gt (2015),
Gsxr750H.

Ayup andy, depends what YOU want. Yankees tend to be a fair bit cheaper than an original registered UK bike. The spec (depending on what 'z' it is ) are slightly different ie single disc, or shorter rear mudguard etc etc. Depending on what model you are interested in, there will be someone on here, or on your doorstep who will be able to advise. You'll pay handsomely for a finished quality bike in the current market. Depends how 'original' you want, what you can repair/source etc and of course time scale. Patience can save you pounds :wink:
cheers freddy
