Zunow Z-1 with funky paintjob

I know someone who has a pretty cool Zunow for sale.. it needs a lot of work and it has some small surface rust spots, but it still looks very cool. I know Zunows can go for thousands depending on the model and components, but considering it might need a paint job (an expensive one) and a few parts, what could it be worth? I think that the person has the original wheels, stem and maybe shifters.

Really nice frame, but just my opinion this bike is just kinda ugly. Most of the Zunow's I have seen are works of art this one just isn't. I would say $400 or so as presented nice bike but it will take some patience and a couple of hundred dollars in parts and work to bring this one to it's true glory. Myself I wouldn't change the paint on the frame but I would likely change pretty much everything else. The somewhat cheap stem converter bars and yellow barf tape really hurt the look of this nice bike. If you look to buy see if they have the original components the correct matching pantoed stem and bars would add $50-100 to it's value.
