I agree some people ask for too much when there are a few bolt ons here and there but this bike is pretty stacked!

That's actually not too bad... Maybe 11k. There is a LOT of work on that bike. It's selling to someone who wants to race it as is and not have to put much into it.

the guy that owns the bike also owns the shop, so not that much labor $$$ put into it

Yeah his time is still worth something to him though. I know mine is when I work on my cars or bikes.

actually its the opposite. The owners time is much more valuable than a $12/hr shop monkeys time.

Just because he doesn't write a check for the labor, doesn't mean it isn't valuable

If he spent X hours building the bike, then that is X hours he didn't spend building his business and making money

I don't get why this pisses people off so much. I see many get very upset over high priced items. Why take it personal, just look, make a lowball offer if you would like to, or move on. When no one buys the item the price will come down, just like with gas .

The amount that people are pissed seems to have a direct correlation with the amount of money that they can afford to spend......
