Default Re: low cost conversion

Lets see I would have to say it isn't cheap, but it sure isn't a full out rebuild of one of those nice early motorcycles that are close to what we are doing with regular bikes.

What I have spent so far.
Springer forks $35
New front wheel with drum brake $120
Rear wheel with sprocket mounted (36 tooth sprocket) to hub will cost $117
Plus another $100 in other things needed
Still need to buy motor kit at about $150 to $180

So you can see it can add up fast. I will try to sell some of my stuff like the old rims which are only about 3 years old, but that won't get me much back in return.
