Hmmmm, the guy at five flags said that the problem is with the shipping. People have to put them together anyway. After they get it, and it turns into a big hassle. If you were in a big city it should work in theory. Could build them in your garage, and then sell them to people in the city. I built one in my garage and rode it around Atlantic Station. One of those places that they are trying the urban renewal projects down town. Ya, know the city in the city. They even have a special bicycle lane. I took it down durning an arts and crafts show. Had a lot of cards that I handed out. Lots of interest, but no one called me. I even have it advertised on Craigs list.
im actually going to when i get a job and sell enough money. im planning on building 2 or 3 bikes and selling them in mexico at the next rocky point rally. the last one i went to people were chasing me down the street asking me so many questions i actually put my bike in my hotel room and wouldnt ride it for a while but people would come up and ask me where my bike was so that got annoying to.
i got way so many offers for it but i couldnt sell it its got to much love in it to give to someone else who would just probibly abuse it and ride it for 3 months and destroy it. i also wore holes in my back tire from doing burnouts for all the drunk bikers. pretty rediculas. some drunk dude gave me 20 bucks to get a new tire but i needed beer more.
My friennd needs to buy 3 or 4 engine kits and he's doing the build and sell thing in Baltimore county area. He is looking for a deal on the kits if anyone knows of a dealer who will give a discount for more than one. I tried most of the regular places for him but got no good deals. My self I'm a machine mechanic and do some electrical work but am retired and disabled. I can fix anything from a broken heart to the crack of dawn fast as a dog will sh*t on the street and quiet as a mouse pissing on cotton. If I can't fix it it ain't broke. I love what that one member says...... beat it to fit / paint it to match. Anyway I'll relocate and go into buisness if anyone has the grubsteak to get it started. Have tools / will travel......Tom in WV
no one is going to buy this at 500 pounds getting on for $1000 at current exchange rate.ebay Item number: 150078705277.you have to have them registered and approved befor putting them on the road over here wich is a lot of money paid to our greedy government.just type in item no if you are interested in looking at the ad.its probably one of the chinese kits i imported in 2005.
I thought about this, it's the reason I built mine. I wanted to see how practical it is. I think it's possible to make a profit building and selling bikes,,,,,,,,,but I own a home and think a LOT about liability. If I build a bike and some idiot doing thirty miles an hour thinks he can stop on a dime using only a rear coaster brake and has an accident, I WILL be held liable for his asinine assumptions. I could end up subsidizing the remaining life of some double digit IQ fool. I don't need that, and I have NO idea how much product liability insurance on a bike would be, but I bet it's more than enough to put the squonk on any commercial venture like this.
um sorry for that just trying to put some info in but the thing is on the bikes th4 cheaper you sell them tyhe better it is im trying to say like $400 for a complte bike or $250 for a engine kit thats all sorry if it was concedered billbpostin or what ever new to this sight
Turbo....billboarding is "selling" in the general areas. There is a special "Buy/Sell/Trade"area for members only, but you will have use Craigslist or e-Bay to "sell" engines, MB.com does not sell items but gives assistance to make up for confusing instructions.
well, you were more than "informing"...you had prices and a phone number posted. you didn't introduce yourself. you didn't even quite get your "ad" in the correct area or contribute to this discussion. mostly, it appears as if you were after some free advertising. that spells billboarding. sellers who successfully interact on MBc start by socializing and sharing relevant info...any sales that result will be come naturally. people here like to buy from other people they know.
i guess maybe you should start by reading the MBc rules and policies before posting, eh?
that's good advice for all prospective members, too
