In the business world $$$ seems to be pretty classy.

Got it. I am just checking the pulse on this. I hope to not enter into a bad business situation. I learned a long time ago where the money was made. Small stuff....spark plugs 30 to 100 percent margins. I used to be a Yamaha/Suzuki/Arctic Cat dealer ... more »

I don't know what someone would pay. That is what this thread is investigating. I bet you can tell me what you would pay.

Just for clarification, I saw you posted the bike with carb and A Kit suspension cost you $3500.00. But the chances of finding that again are slim.

langhammx: Ill bite. For starters----this is probably my favorite build that I have seen on this forum. Keep in mind there are 220ish pages of Kick Ass Two Strokes on here so you did a fine job! Clean-low hours-RM250 $3000.00 A kit suspension $6500.00 ... more »

That motor looks wicked! I can't do the head nuts, but everything else is looking tight!!!!

Added reply in a thread Is there a market for custom built 2 stroke MX bikes? 8/12/2016 6:09 PM

The 7k was just a rough number as stated previously. What I am feeling out are guys (like me) that would rather buy an RM250 for $2500 and put $4000.00 into it and have exactly what they want, than to buy a new KTM or Husky. I have much respect for KTM ... more »

If everybody taking pictures with their phones were trying to help put out the fire with a Dixie cup, it would have been out before it started.

OK. All input is being appreciated and absorbed. Now, here is another question........if you were to lay down your hard earned cash for said bike, WHAT WOULD THAT BIKE BE? I am looking for year/make/model/layout type answers like 2005 Carmichael replica ... more »

That is along the lines I am thinking. Talk is cheap and whisky costs money. I think rather than say "what if", a guy could say, "here's what we have". I am just thinking out loud wondering if the demand is there. I think we will do 3 or 4 builds this ... more »

Added reply in a thread Is there a market for custom built 2 stroke MX bikes? 8/11/2016 9:43 PM

My idea would be more along the lines of documenting a build from scratch right from the frame. The customer or buyer would say for instance.....I want an RM250 with a black frame, Pro Circuit exhaust, cerakote cases, black rims, red hubs, Pro Taper ... more »

Added reply in a thread Is there a market for custom built 2 stroke MX bikes? 8/11/2016 8:11 PM

You are correct, I forgot about that. What I am looking at would be 2004-2008 RMs or 2005-current YZs that a guy could pick motor, wheels, graphics, accessories etc and get exactly what they want but don't necessarily have the time, desire, or ability ... more »

Added reply in a thread Is there a market for custom built 2 stroke MX bikes? 8/11/2016 7:47 PM

That's what I am trying to feel out. Most of the guys I know that do them want to do it step by step and dollar by dollar on their own. Service Honda has made a fantastic name for themselves and do top notch stuff. I don't have any interest in doing ... more »

Just a feeler question........If you could build to order a custom 2 stroke dirt bike would you? We are playing around with the idea of doing some custom two stroke bikes (mainly Rms and Yzs). I would imaging they would be in the $6000 to $7000 range ... more »

The Alpinestars Tech 7 has a small toe box as well.
