Missing parts, broken parts, and me not knowing what I was looking at, and still managed to get it running for like $15 some duct tape and bailing wire (literally!). If you want to be a cheapskate you can build a bike for very little, and with a little elbow grease and creativity you can keep it going for practically nothing. I can't even register my truck for what it costs to build from scratch. Looks like that machine doesn't owe you a dime!
