Should I wait to see if the business is somewhat successful?

Thanks in advance


The real problem with this is: the fact that you are providing a finished product ready for use by the consumer. If you live in a rural area where the majority of the population is accustomed to being self sufficient, and able to repair mechanical things...such as a farm community, you won't have any problems. No LLC needed.

If you are in a metropolitan area you will be inundated by idiots that want the same sort of service that they get from Wally World, "FROM YOU".

I could sell bikes here as fast as I could build them. I won't because I know it will be a head ache, and the fun of doing this will be ruined.
