Default Re: Just Curious

I Have been perfecting mine for months, but learned so much. I agree with Jim if you finally got a product you know is strong and repeat the process; it could be done much faster. Just some of the things I would do to all builds myself if I were to have to stand behind my work.
12 gage spokes
Loose bearings replacing the race.
Steel frame
Plug wire and plug replacement
Puncture proof tubes
Fuel line replaced
Better chain tentioner
Husky or Workman bike. Old bikes can't be repeated and you might make a deal with a manufacture if you’re buying in bulk.

but then the cost would be high that is lure of these bikes, is the cost.

another way to approch this is to be just a repair shop and not a manufacture, Then you have a standard labor rate and build bikes to fill in the dead time.
Always do a pre-ride check. Make it a habit, and ride safe.
