Default Re: What is the best bike to build to sell?

Ok guys, I found a bike. I have been checking craigslist everyday looking for a good used candidate. I found a great bike! I have decided to only buy used bikes for these build to sell projects.

I found an 80's Specialized Hardrock mountain bike. It is a steel Chromoly frame. That is nice because the frame tubes are all small so little to no modifications needed to mount the engine. It has front and rear brakes that work really well. It has thinner road tread tires which will be smoother on the road and no chain rub. It is in really good condition, oh and it has a rear over the tire rack on it which is good for extra fuel or tools or whatever. I only paid 50 bucks for it!

So in my opinion the best bike to build and sell is a good used one. So now I will keep my eyes open at all times.
