I have a 2006 yellow Roadster that I ride every fine day...I work on wet days only!
And it's going to be worth a mint one day to some lucky bugga! haha All the mods are bolt-on and I have kept what I swapped out.
But, yeah, those Iron Heads look good, especially that blue one a member here has (Scuba10jbl)

Back in 69 I had a custom Suzuki motocross bike built for me by Matsuda Gintaku, a Suzuki dealer in Okinawa, the brand new bike and all of the modifications came to less than $500.00

What is that Vincent worth today? If it was originally $2000.00, and today it's worth $100,000.00 That's a 4,900 percent return on the $2000.00 investment.

Ask Jay Leno and other rich folks why they have so much money tied up in collector cars, bikes, and art.
How many have gone for $100,000? I would imagine there would need to be a provenance to get that much and usually a one off racer or similar with a little extra added. Average for a Good condition Vincent is around $20,000 AFAIK, how much investment to keep a Vincent in good condition?

Rich people have a lot more invested in their collection than you might think, the most valuable have provenance or very rare editions or both. Really good restorations cost $$$$.

I do know a $1000 investment in Walmart's original stock is worth millions, no restoration investment needed or storage needed.
