the motor is a 48cc.
at $220 for the motor kit (single speed set up) it one of the cheapest part of the bike. from mbbimports.com.au
and $500 for the Gt-1 frame
the sick bike parts shift kit + shipping to Australia comes to $300
the steel gussets and exhaust pipe (just the welding) cost around $500
this was done at mates rates by a certified structural engineer.
the IGH 8 speed nexus + new front and rear wheel + spokes + balancing
came in at around the $500 mark
the bike will have about a 280 day payback period. based on $9/day carparking at my work.
It has taking me about 2 years to get this far.
I have a seagull outboard motor brass tank on the way. the current mini-keg is too bulky.
which is dumb, as I really like, its just impractical.
I cant wait to show this off at a 'Mens Shed' http://www.mensshed.org/home/.aspx
Even thou Im only 30. Im sure the guys at the shed would love it.
