    Just out of curiosity, does anyone know if anybody anywhere has ever priced out all of the parts needed and available to build a modo?

    For example, using a website like Ron Ayers to order everything you would need or that they have available for a moto like a 2006 VFR.

    If no one has or doesn't get to it, I find it a really interesting thought and think I'm going to price it up. If you want to go ahead and do it for me, that would be awesome! Just don't forget to include the items needed in quantities...

    I definitely would need 4 piston springs instead of just one for example.

    Ride or bike magazine over here did it on a fireblade a good few years ago the cost was astronomical. As in you could have bought few brand new bikes.

    If I was going to do that, I might explore a way to do it through an API or something on their site if that's possible. For instance write code that looks for LIKE "VFR" or something like that and then grab them all.

    I think it'd be hard any way you slice it, though.

    If you're that bored, maybe try learning a new language

    Ahaha! Learn code language for writing the code to solve my wonder. I am learning German. With no mote graduate school, I have to work on something for my brain.

    I did one set the other night on Ron Ayers when I started thinking about it. Only took a min. Maybe I play during meeting today.

    If you have to ask, you can't afford it.
    Good thing they come assembled with all needed parts.
