If engine needs work  and another $5000 
average value of restored Z1 900 varies a great deal depending on model early Z1 can be worth much more than say a Z900A4

Of course this does depend on how fussy you are and does not include cost of  powder coating or respraying in enamel  frame or any Labour cost
