Default Re: What's Your Bike Worth

I build mine on the cheap too but I do tend to put a lot of time into the engines and the frames to make sure they're strong and reliable. The one I ride I probably got about $500 or so invested in since I bought the bike at a pawn shop for $70 then gota kit off ebay for $139, then a Fred head, and finally a Dax bottom end... and I also bought a better front end since I didn't like those springy cheap shocks that come on those cheap mountainbikes... Since this one isn't for sale there's a ton of labor involved which I couldn't even think about adding into the price if it was for sale, but the ones I see for sale around here go for around $500 to $700 for a basic cruiser bike with an ebay kit installed... Usually the bike is a WalMart special that costs around $120 or so and the kits they use are the standard ebay kits with no extras or upgrades.
