Default A Few Questions


I have only been a member of this forum for a short time. As some of you may know, my boyfriend passed away a few weeks ago. We were just getting into this hobby and even thought about selling motorized bicycles. I thought about trying to put them together myself, but don't think I'd enjoy it. So, I guess my question is, what would I pay someone to put them together for me? Should I pay someone by the hour or per bike? Does a motorized bicycle really only take 2-3 hours to assemble? I really want to keep things going in memory of Dow, he loved his bike so much. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

I think you could get it down to that time after a couple of builds. How you pay them is up to you and your ability to profit. But I think it's 1 thing to assemble a kit and another to make a safe reliable well built motorbicycle!

It's one thing if a bike you pay some "bozo" to build breaks down... It's another thing if it breaks & gets somebody hurt!
