A project I like, building a special bike without the use of lots of money.
( my own HANX costs about 600 euro, mainly because of the rebuilding of the brake calipers and master cylinder, and of course the seat )

I'm with you re low cost builds, they make you smile more when you find and make bits yourself.

This is my GS550, took 3 weeks, cost around 500
(same as Euro now!), so much fun I am making a couple more.

low budget, nice bikes

When you use a bike that's not so popular, you can build a bike in your own style at low costs. It's also possible when you have a garage full of parts that you can't sell and that are left of an other project. Build a bike of it!! My Freddy Spencer replica till now , it only costs 300 euro. I will paint it myself in the spring, and the only big expence left are a set of inlet rubbers between the carburators and cylinderhead.
