Default Re: can anyone make a living with this hobby?


It depends on what you call "a living". If I could sell one bike a month @ 500 dollars, minus the cost of the kit and a cheap bicycle, I would still not quite make it.

If I could sell two bikes a month for 500 dollars I would be fine....but most people would not be able to pay their rent with that kind of money.

The problem where I live is weather and location. I live very far out in the ''middle of nowhere"....and people don't buy these things from your front yard here in the winter.

If you lived in a metropolitan area, where the weather was good year 'round, and could sell a couple or four a month, AND you didn't have a lot of bills, you certainly could do it.
