Default These Kits as Collector's Items

Is it possible that maybe one day, fifty or a hundred years from now, that these Chinese kits will be a collector's item and valuable?

Consider the Model T. At one time it was ubiquitous and was found in virtually every city in North America. It was also built by various countries simultaneously since they were being produced in Walkerville, Canada and in Trafford Park, Greater Manchester, England starting in 1911 and were later assembled in Germany, Argentina, France, Spain, Denmark, Norway, Belgium, Brazil, Mexico, and Japan.
There were plenty of 'em all around, and everyone had one and they could be bought and sold cheaply.

Today Model T Fords are valuable collector's items.

Could the same fate await these Motorized Bicycle kits?
