Don't remember exactly if there was any specific discussion or not but it referred to this website. Some said they wanted to make a kit themself.
When would you finish the kit? How much it would cost? What concerned me is also that would you ship it oversea?

Have nice day.

I will post pricing as soon as I figure out my final costs. I have quoted the $600 range in the past.

I'm hoping to finish the kit soon. A few weeks until I start seeing parts.

I can ship it overseas no problem, I just make sure it has tracking info. Costs a little more but not too bad. The only thing is if you have a tax on incoming products, it can increase your cost (such as in the UK).

Kuksul, on that expensive paint... I would pay an extra $10-15 to get the best paint you can get... maybe since you need more volume this time you can get a better deal on it from a distributor, or maybe even get a paint shop do use the good stuff from a bulk container, instead of rattle cans....

You make a good paint... point...

I thought to anodize them... but then the screws will not match the same shade of black. I will surely find something suitable and the end result will be pro.

Good news - I just ordered the final circuit board version! It looks so damn good, I cannot wait to show off the kit. This thing is finally coming together

I don't know if methods have improved, but I have seen a lot of black anodization turn purple after some sunlight exposure...

That's when they use organic dye. A proper dye will last for a LONG time without discoloring.

So I decided to go back to my classic coating. It's the most expensive and labor intensive - requires a spray gun and baking, but it is the BEST coating imaginable. I will post more details later.

Question for you guys - so far I have defaulted to black for the lights, for stealth and matching the bike. Do you prefer a different color? I can get almost any color: gray, red, tan, blue, turquoise, white, etc... with varying levels of gloss, satin, or matte. I will probably start with black, but if there is demand I will order another color too! I thought about making the bracket red to match the frame, but it would have to be an exact match or it would look bad.

Now to learn how to use a paint sprayer.

Kuksul, I've been following your build and I was just wondering if you had any updates on the finished prototype. I'm hoping to be able to set aside 600 ish for the lights by the time you're finished. will let you know.
