I don't care about cost I'm more of an artist... I imagine what I want and make it happen... There are compromises and fails... Takes forever... Only the best parts

I guess my thing is there being problem I need to solve. Speed, torque, performance, aesthetic. If there isn't a readily available problem I will find one shortly.

I just struggle with throwing a $99 part on a throw away engine that is built like sh*t and cost similarly. Reminds me of the ricer/tuner guys from highschool who would put $2k exhaust setups on a honda they spent $600 on.

I could imagine thinking "hey I'll have this pipe forever and put it on the next one" - is that how y'all justify the spend?

Or are y'all just hard in on tinkering and don't GAF?

Either way, I kinda get both reasonings lol :)
$99, lol, $99 lol. I spend thousands on this hobby each year. An throw away motor? These bad boys run for years and year and years if you take care of them, just like any other engine. I don't try to justify it at all, I like this hobby, I'll spend as much or as little as I feel like. An if you seen my thread on spending, you'll be able to count up the dollars. lol. It's a lot, and @Mossy he spends like money it is going out of style too. lol. Drop the 99 bucks, you can't bring your money with you when you die.

The secret to motorized bicycle and everything is find something you like in the threads on here and ask a lot of questions about it... I jump around grabbing ideas from everywhere... If you have a budget, shop around and ask about it, figure out the cost and tools required... I have to run power and turn a screened in porch into a workshop... So this winter I'm just getting parts for the future... I know the price and availability of just about everything motorized bicycle out there... Most only know what there building or have in front of them... Everything has to work together in tune... If not, there working against each other and then it's back to asking questions and sometimes it's just something that doesn't seem significant that makes the difference... Like a larger sprocket is going to need a longer chain and so on.

I have no problems making any particular part better or fit, and up here in Canada that part would be a buck and a half. I lucked out when I bought my jog pipe, Amazon had a used one for $41.
