Re: Poll: price vs. availability
This is a tough question to answer. I for one haven't ordered anything yet. But Even I agree with the fellows here saying you deserve to make something off what you make. I have been reading all the answers here and I have come to see that you are not just a supplier of superior products but custom products as well. I have to admit I was floored when I read you make $0.00 profit I have also seen many stand and defend their friend/brother here. You are not just a valued supplier of wonderful parts that are provided at a great price. But a person who deserves to be rewarded for your hard work. I believe that you should raise your prices, make a profit, and keep doing things the way you have for so long. Don't change the way you have been doing business so far. If it ain't broke Don't fix it. Folks will wait for quality! They always have. You will still have the loyalty of the motorized bicycle community knocking at your door looking for that part they can't find anywhere else. I have never seen such a tight knit group of people as I see here. I have to say as a rather new member here I can contribute nothing but some knowledge I learn here and my opinion. You on the other hand Sir are a necessity here.
What makes this country so great is the freedom of choice. I for one choose to pay more for a QUALITY part from a friend rather than a cheap part I can have tomorrow from anybody.
Just my opinion. Opinions are like A**holes everybody's got one some just stink more than others.
Hope it Helps. I am also a proud member of the 20 MPH. club
