    It's great that people are starting to recognize the collector value and rairity of these bikes. I do think the 9 will be top dog as far as value because of Kawasaki ditching the dragster look for the cruiser style of the 10. Insurance driving the design...

    Welcome to the club, enjoy your new ZL!

    I watched 5 hours of this show but no ZL in that time frame. They will air some more auction action early tomorrow morning, will watch that and see if the ZL appears.

    No I did not. Seems the first show was all bikes from a collector over the pond. The second show was the remaining bikes from that collection plus some others. The next show scheduled to air at midnight 2-4-19 might have something. I will have to watch it the next morning on DVR to see if the elusive ZL makes an appearance.

    I watched all of the 2019 Mecum bike Auction. They did not show all the bikes. I didn't see the ZL 9 or Matts Macio 490. It was part of the Bob Weaver Collection. https://www.mecum.com/lots/LV0119-347893/1981-maico-m2/ That 240 bike collection was from Stockholm Sweden & not the UK.

    Did you watch all 4 episodes ? I watched the first 3 but did not see the last one. And no ZL was shown in those first 3.
