Your opinion requested

Hello everybody from Florence,
I am planning to buy my first NZ350 and I have found this one for sale in Italy.
It looks nice to me and the price is 9500 euros but I need some opinion from more expert than me about this matter.
Do you think is the price justified by the quality and restoration of the bike?
Are there wrong parts?
thanks in advance

Nice Nz350 !! not bad but a lot of incorrect parts!!!!

incorrect Price is in my opinion a little to big... :roll:

incorrect: Handelbars,headlight ,feulcap,tankemblem,Speedo ,Airfilter (missing ),fueltap,
the color looks to much gloss not fuly matt (but not sure of that from a picture)
ignition switch not correct mounted,
I am not 100% sure about the position & construction plate too ???
the rest is hard to say from the pictures??

Hope you can buy for an good price!! :D

Greats

Hi,

At the first sight it looks very nice, but far from original. As Raimond told there are some wrong parts. I also spotted:
-Jawa speedo (repro)
-wrong horn
-wrong lens at tail lamp
-Foot peg rubbers wrong
-Rear foot pegs wrong
-A 1940 bike shall not have the reinforcment brackets for the luggage rack
-Ignition switch looks strange with some kind of a spacer plate at the bottom.

In my opinion with this price asked, these (mostly expensive) parts should be the correct ones.

Thank you both for your precious opinion.
I will try to negotiate the price because of the uncorrect or missing parts you point up.
I hope to reach a good agreement with the seller, if so I will join the nz-owners family!
ps: are the missing or wrong parts hard to find?
cheers
