Hi all who have done it,

I'm looking to learn maintenance, by practicing taking a bike apart & putting it back together. it's part of a plan to do long motorcycle trips in the future, that will require hands on when the bike breaks down along the way

What is the best value, bike model to do this?

I have seen guys refurbishing honda nighthawks into cafe races. however, it seems to be rare with noone selling these days. are the 'classics' like rxk & rxz good choices for my purposes?
