IMHO , in the years to come, unmolested bikes hold their value, unlike 'custom' bikes. Although some 'custom' bikes are a crowd pleaser at the time, that vision often fades, whereas a stock bike in pristine condition will only appreciate in value.

Nothing wrong with original restorations! I appreciate the historical documentation of classic Honda motorcycles as well. A perfect slice of time travel back to the 70's and 80's motorcycle culture and freedom it represents to a society propagating conformity and restriction. Also, nothing wrong with custom restorations! To take a stock Honda to the next level and make a unique, one of a kind, motorcycle that makes a statement about what a motorcycle "is". I personally like original bike, but love! vintage bikes that have something more to say. It makes me think about what a motorcycle means to me and to the society more over. (ie. Zen and The Art of Motorcycle Maintenance) And why not find deeper meaning in motorcycles? Why not express that in a vintage build? Don't think Original or Custom are in competition with one another. They're different expressions of the same thing.

I also challenge the concept that originals hold more value over the long term. It all depends because there are so many different kinds of custom bikes. Some hold up over time and others are more " one hit wonders".
