    I don't it's the norm. None of the parts in this auction are rare in my neck of the woods. It is a nice clean frame, but about $150-$200 higher than anything I've seen before. Soft Tail air cleaners, exhausts, exhaust heat shields, and tail light brackets can bring in some $$, but never seen a frame, swing arm and shocks bring out this many bucks.

    FWIW...whatever it is that makes this remnant more valuable than most, I'm not seeing it, either. I see a used frame & swingarm with a pair of virtually useless shocks. Unlike a full roller, or CT70 frame/swingarm/shocks, these soft tail Z50 parts are easy to ship...cheap...so even location doesn't matter much.

    Still, if the ultimate buyer, and the seller, are both happy...no problemo. Those of us who feel it's overpriced are free to just say no. It's all good. Ironically high prices are actually a good thing. As long as someone can make a living making & selling parts, the bikes will remain viable for those of us who like to ride them.

    Ya, those frames do not typically bring that much money. This seller just seems to have hit it just right with his auction. Sometimes you just get lucky.
