I think most of us if not all would have to sell off a few bikes in order to get one. Including me and my hard earned moneeeeyy!Nice, but only $2K? For $2K, don't I get a front fender? Let's see, if I sell all my bikes I could put a down payment on one. Looks like a super cool ride for a young rich hero...like DoubleL. Gary
I think for $2k you should get more than a front fender, like maybe a motorcycleNice, but only $2K? For $2K, don't I get a front fender? Let's see, if I sell all my bikes I could put a down payment on one. Looks like a super cool ride for a young rich hero...like DoubleL. Gary
Yes, well...good luck on buying a motorcycle for 2 grand...albeit a junk one....one of the intended target audience for these bikes are those less fortunate that have no drivers license, lost their driving license or and instead of putting down more than a grand upwards of 2000.00 for a china made scooter they could ride something with cool & dignity.....whew! some people just don't get it! Let's see....have you priced a motorized anything that is cool lately???I think for $2k you should get more than a front fender, like maybe a motorcycle
Well said.....I agree...same here in Indiana...prices do drop drastically....just putting it out there for someone who has some demonstrated building skills...a pretty darn cool line-up...not a lot of money, and is yet willing to grind out a new venture in a down-turned economy. Hats off to a young man with credible dreams. At the turn of the last century there were a vast number of bike builders and only a handful that survived due to the hard times in front of them. Hopefully his passion, dedication, and his drive will help see him through any difficult times ahead. Looking a little deeper than what appears on the surface of this enterprise, I personally see a pretty darn solid research foundation and historically correct designs that are sure to inspire an upcoming young audience. We shall see. Thanks for your input. Really appreciate it. Knowledge is priceless and sharing it is even more so.Sym Wolf Classic is $3000.... cheapest new moto that i'd be willing to rock.
These Nat'l Moto & Cycle bikes seem to be felts w/ a Chinese 2stroke installed, and some accessories. Yeah, nothing groundbreaking, but $2k seems like a fair price given that dude has to make a profit, and no doubt he has business-related overhead to cover. Sure, many ppl on here would prefer to go the DIY route, but they'd be pretty close to $1.5k if they do it right, plus al the time spent.
Many "normal" ppl would gladly pay a pure premium to avoid the time/headaches spent on building a motorized bicycle. It's worth it to have someone to complain to if I doesn't go right, too.
But for me, if I want 2 wheels and a moor, I'd buy an 80s/early90s VFR with mild damage to the plastics, and build a "streetfighter" out of it.
Two grand buys a lot of bike these days, especially if you wait til, like, November... at lest in places like NJ, where winter is a factor.
