Hmm, I got a huge deal on them (I have contacts in the RC industry). But, I can tell you what they should cost;

The motor (AXI 5345) $240
Controller $260
Throttle potentiometer $14
Battery $600 (I paid $435)
Charger $225
Misc. materials about $300 (chain, sprocket, pulleys, belts, bearings, aluminum, etc).

Machining equipment? Hmm, about $5,000!

Oh, I am looking at a used TIG welder tomorrow. :D

Mr. Shumaker Thank you!! I have been working on a BMX based jackshaft and seeing your beautiful adaptation is really going to help.

I am really anxious to see the on-road results! Outstanding work!

Impressive- to say the least. I too want to see how she performs- but I have no doubt it will be exactly what you painstakingly designed it to be.
