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

Here's my take on building to sell, I jumped on the get rich quick wagon and was very successful but also stressed every time a bike left the cave. Why you ask because I knew the bikes were cheap,most of the people that bought the bikes had no mechanical skill. $350.00 they went quick $450.00 was tuff.
I then started doing just installs on your bike $300.00 that was a bigger success but every bike was different so that required a lot off fab work. The guys that are building the high dollar stuff can sleep after a sale but hold on to the rides for a while. I like quick nickels not slow dimes.

All that being said it is possible to build and sell, but the sleeping thing is hard to get use too.
