Then the liability.
if i put em together for $600 i think i'll be able to make 300-400 on the labor tbh.

gas prices going through the roof will make $900-$1,000 seem like a good investment, back in 2008 when gas was $4 a gallon in the summer scooters were being sold for $2,000 or so n flying off the lots.

sure others may try to do the same thing and do it for less, but again that would be with cheap bikes and cheap motors, i wouldn't want to sell something i wouldn't want to ride myself.

liability is the only thing to really be concerned with but i'll figure something out before i start building em for people.
