it'd funny you mention expensive bikes. i was talking to a guy recently about building him a bike. he just dropped a coupla grand for a roadbike for one of his sons. his older son wanted a motored bike, and the guy told me that my quote of $1200 was too expensive, and said he could do half of that.
seriously. i don't understand how he can think a custom bike with a motor should cost 1/4 the amount of a mid-range road bike. obviously to him, the road bike is legitimate, while a Motor bike is just a toy.
So what would your $1200 motor bike look like and have on it? New bike or used to start with?
