Wife says it's time to downsize. (Not sure what that means) I think she wants me to sell off some stuff! Anyway the Bugatti is FS, built about 10-12 years ago, has all the right components (Honda GX200,Comet TAV, Hydraulic brakes, rack and pinion steering, CT90 wheels, Gazelle tires, front friction shocks, plywood tub with aluminum body parts and fiberglass over foam tail. Built to Stevenson formula, runs great and has little total time. There is not much CK interest here in Ohio so it has never been raced just putted around the neighborhood. I can supply more pictures if interested.

Serious offers?

It was sure nice meeting you when you stopped by the house (I mean the Cyclekart workshop) awhile back. We had a good discussion about Cyclekarts and I enjoyed your company. Sorry to see that the time has come to sell Bugatti. Beautiful machine Wayne. Its interesting to note that you built your Cyclekart between 2000 and 2010, a decade where there were very few Cyclekarts constructed. From my research I'm estimating that there were 25 Cyclekarts worldwide at the time you built yours, maybe less. I started building in 2011 and the ranks of builders was very thin at that point.

I'm interested as well. To make an offer, could you tell us what it cost to build the exact same machine today? That may help in giving a fair price. Thanks.

Using all new parts as I did, probably $1500 to 2000 in parts. Not to mention the 100 hours in construction or so plus paint that was done at a local body shop at $400.

Thanks for your interest...Wayne

What are you asking for it and how tall are you if we can't make a deal do you know where to but a rolling frame? Thanks james

Probably $4000 would convince me to let it go. Crating for shipping would be extra, you pay actual crating and shipping costs. There is a professional international shipping and crating company here in town that would be able to handle the job.

Thanks, Wayne

That's a "Honey, yes I'm trying to sell it" price if I ever saw one! Smart guy Wayne.

A guy could always go VK co. and pay twice that. Or more.

If my wife told me to sell my spitfire, I'd list it at $25,000 and if it sold great, but otherwise I'd just keep driving it. Where as it is worth about a 1/4 of that.

My Dad was fond of saying "Son, that car is worth exactly as much as you can sell it for."
And so, we will see.

Its funny how people seem to think these karts are virtually free to build. The cost for parts today is close to $2500 just for materials, I have a spreadsheet that totals $1800 that doesn't count all the parts you still need and the many trips to the hardware store get all the fasteners, sand paper, paint, aluminum, plywood or whatever material you choose for the body.)

That doesn't count the hundreds of hours spent building and fabricating. So unless you put no value on your time......add a few thousand for assembly and sweat. $5,000 sounds cheap to me.

We need to think about these karts as works of art. When we as a group degrade the public perception by saying "oh you can probably build one for under $1,000." That is just not true.....

I have build two of these fun little karts and can honestly say that I value them higher than $5000. Look at VKC for a guide, their least expensive kart is around $10,000. Why do we think ours aren't worth at least $5000. ( for a well built and designed kart like the Bugatti here).

Just my $.02 worth.

Good luck selling you beautiful machine.

Steve, Thanks for your very articulate response! Having been in the retail business for almost 50 years I have seen it all and nothing surprises me anymore. People seem to think that they might get lucky with low offers or catch someone at a bad moment and score a great deal.

Since I don't really want to sell the Bug, I will continue to entertain serious offers!
