Re: Endless Money Pit !!!!!
I have to admit that some scooters and small motorcycles are probably more practical for the money that is potentially spent with customizing these things, but they are no where near as cool! I spent quite a chunk on my first couple of builds just tinkering and trying new stuff. The last build I did with the atv engine will probably be my last build for quite a while, if it holds together. I can stay with a 125cc scooter WOT with no problem, so speed is no longer an issue for me. I have spent around $1000 building my bike and the 125cc scooter I rode with going home from work the other day cost about $3000. I get better gas mileage and a lot more conversations from the bike than he does from his scooter. I guess that's why I enjoy this so much. Scooters and motorcycles are common, and I own both, but these are real attention getters and smile promoters.
