Worth restoring?

Post by Tristan zxr »

Hi guys/gals I'm new to this forum and just looking for abit of advice.
So I've got a nice zxr400 h1 in the garage that hasn't been used in a long time due to it having a few problems and never getting round to getting my full licence. I'm at the point now where I'm bored of driving driving a car and just want to get back onto a bike, so I was wandering, as I do really love this bike would it actually be worthwhile to restore it to its former glory or just go ahead and buy a newer bike.
Is the bike likely to increase in value overtime.
Are parts easy to get ahold of.
Please let me know what you think and if I decide to restore it I'll keep you updated.

H1 parts are about the hardest to come by (1 year lifespan for some items).

If you want something good and reliable, get a modern bike.

If you want something different to most other people, restore the bike.

Restoring a bike costs lots of spare cash depending on the condition of the bike obviously! Does it need a refresh or full on resto.

Best post up some photos of the bike..
