Default Re: How much did your build cost?

My first build, my bike, wasn't bad since I've owned the bike itself for around 20 years now. The engine kit (66cc), speed carb, and 36T sprocket were around $200 altogether, from ZoomBicycles. A few tools, and misc. bits and pieces probably added around $100.

For the second build, my wife's bike, she bought the bike used from a shop for a bit under $100, the same motor, carb and 48T sprocket from the same supplier (bought off a neighbour who went and got it for his wife after seeing mine - she didn't want it so he sold it to me) for about $200.

I don't count the hours, because to me this isn't work.

For my current project, I don't really want to think about it. With the first two I had them both up and running within a weekend. This one has been an off and on project for quite a while now.


Any day that starts with a good ride is already a better day, and a bad day riding still beats a good day working.
