If its that fragile then I can understand the price. Also, if you are paying $42K for the bike then another $1K for shipping is a drop in the bucket seeing that most shipping companies these days dont take extra time to ensure that your item doesnt break.

I love the bike, but the price-tag puts me in mind of all the places I could ride the bike I have using that for budget.

I don't see paying anything like that much.

It will just end up in someone's living room, or other collection area, and is highly unlikely to ever enjoy the road again... shame, looks like it would be cool to cruise (kinda like a moped, fun, yes, not so sure if I want my friends seeing me on it though!!)

I love the fact that the $1,000.00 shipping is listed as "ECONOMY Shipping" - not in this economy, it isn't!

I paid $800 to have my 1968 Camaro RS shipped 1,800 miles. $1,000 for a bicycle seems steep.

The fork and frame do not match. From pictures on the internet this bike was available in a few colors. Two of those are evident in this bike.
