    I guess he has more buyers than kits these days. He sure gets a lot of favorable mentions here for sure.

    Try some of the other dealers I think we can probably talk you though getting it running. No guarantees though.

    Yeah, I guess with popularity and demand, up go the prices!

    Ouchy!

    yup, same situation here. the Economic Stimulus Check came making funds available, then smack! $50.00 more.

    i understand supply and demand, but a mention of the planned increase would have been nice when i was in communication with them on the 27th :-(

    I don't think it is all greed on thatsdax's part.
    The dollar just is not worth as much any more.
    NeoCon economics.
    I expect as the old kits from other suppliers get replaced the prices will rise there as well.

    Off topic
    I pull into the easiest to use gas station. The price is $3.95 per gallon. As I am filling up the price goes to $ 4.09 per gallon.
    LOL

    every ones prices are rising. still i think they are very reasonable in price. just figure out how many miles you can use it for errands or for commuting to work and they pay for themselves real quick. i just bought a titan and my estimates is it will pay for itself in a few months down here. its a small island and gas is only 3.37 a gallon here but every day i take a trip exploring in the car and on the motorized bicycle it will be a whole new experience and i will see things i never saw before. yesterday i put a hundred miles on the car and the island is only 28 miles long and 8 miles wide at the widest point :eek:

    I think they are still worth it. Some peole spend that much going out to the bar on the weekend or on a golf outing.

    In 1980 I was between wives so shopping for my own groceries. Jimmy Carter was president then. I was in the store with a buggy full of food. I picked up a loaf of bread and before I could move the cart, an employee with a label cum picked it up from my buggy and raised the price a nickel. Now that is run away inflation.
