600 bucks isn't so bad, i mean, look at how much Felt charges, and they use 14g. spokes. the main thing you gotta think about, is for 6 bills, plus motor, you're into it for 700, 750 apiece. then you gotta think, "who's gonna buy these?"

you said you bought one, put a motor on it and see what kinda response you get. if you could find enough people interested, it might be a nice profit.

or, keep the one for yourself, buy another, and put it on ebay without a motor. see if anyone bites...

another thing, what about the rest of the parts? is it a shimano coaster brake or a no-name china? is the chrome good? check out what the parts cost at Niagara Cycles or bikepartsusa and add them up. i mean, it's still looks waaay cooler than a cranbrook. but it is 6 times the price...
