High end vintage Japanese bikes are equal or better than high end vintage Italian bikes. (Usually better). BUT..................................they're not as collectable, desirable or, expensive. So, old Jap bikes generally go for about $ 1/3 to 1/2 what their Italian counterparts go for. What's not to like. It's a lot easier to sell an old Japanese bike for $350 or so than to sell an old Italian bike for $1200. That's it. That's all. Done deal. Be good. Have fun.
