I'd have to make a pretty darned good profit on the bike to put up with that.
I've been building and riding these bikes since the spring of 2008. During that time I"ve seen quite a few other motored bikes. Mostly china girls. What I haven't seen is any of these guys sticking around. I'll see some guy once, and sometimes twice, and then he'll disappear.
I guess these folks just don't have the moxie to do what it takes to keep these in good working order.
Yep I feel the same way, plus m6 biggest problem is I live several miles out of town, so helping people with repairs would really be a pain for both of us and cost me a fortune in gas running back and forth to town.
