I like it too. And sorry I'm really bad at appraising values. It's cost me a lot over the years.

The engine seems to have an ever so slight lean (3rd pic) to the left.

That looks like a very solid mount. Possibly the jig shifted when notching or welding the mount bar to the down tube/seat tube? Or when fitting the short tubes to the mount bar?

Even not perfect, I like that mount! Seems adaptable to other (read GX50) engines, too. (^)

its slightly off to the left so i can add a wider tire later on . well the nirve cannibal retails 600
well, if you paid 600.00 for the bike then take that, plus the cost of the kit, aobut 100.00 for the custom tank....I'd say no more than 1200.00 obo but I'd have a hard time taking less that 1000.00

That's a nice build. However you have to take into account that the bike is now used and only worth about $300 same for the engine. Add the nice custom tank you built the whole thing is prob. worth between $600 and $700 dollars. Of course you have alot more into it because you built it. But to sell it your not going to be able to get what you have put into it. Don't get me wrong what you have done with it is a work of Art and truly cool. (^)

Why did you go with the thin tire on the rear, did you have problems with the sprocket or the chain clearance or...

by offsetting the motor slightly does that solve all clearance issues with the chain on the fat 3 inch tire

i am about to build one myself

I could really use some close up pictures of the simplest method, the ones on venice beach site is perfect but cant get a close up view of the nirve bike in the pics

Id say its worth a g note
