I would put the total cost between $3500 and $4500 CAD and that is with all the doubles and extras. I figure I could build another even better bike now for about $2500 as I already have a lot of the parts.
I am calmer in my age and last year at this time I had a bike burn to the ground (Emmo GT80) from a bad charger or not enough testing so I started this build early in the year to be sure it would be ready.
Also I have a lot of other projects on the go and I don't have time to get mad. I am currently building a 28x30 shop for a man cave.
Absolutely would do ebay china again as this same bike would be $6500 with out it. Free shipping on Ebay China is 2-3 months so you need to plan for it but the price is incomparable. Consider this I have a 2004 sienna AWD and a part I needed was $41 at Toyota and $1.63 on ebay new in the same package. So I went with Ebay as I am cheaper then I am patient.
I am adding the battery disconnect in place of a solid state relay that failed last week. The relay is the only failure so far and I am at about 6-7000 KM as this is my daily driver. Lots of people asked why heavy frame , moto wheels and such for a commuter and it is proven in the reliability where the value lies. I am also running this bike at low 25 amps to keep things under stressed and top it out about 45KPH. The biggest feet in the build for me personally is the functional signal, brake and running lights and aslo the correct chain ring for cadence. I have never been bothered by the police and they smile when I go by as I pass 2-3 a day on my commute.
