i’ve been pricing parts with the idea of making maybe 40-60 boards at once and doing preorders for them.
do you think anyone would be interested in a $750 dual drive longboard? Obviously i’d have to use more “cost effective” parts and buy them in volume to get this price, and it wouldn’t be the “brand-x” killer the custom builds are but people keep asking me for a more budget board and i just can’t build boards in that price range that are completely custom.
So i thought maybe i could bring my styling to some kind of short run preorder lower-price lower-performance slurpee run type board that could be built using parts from some of these vendors that have popped up recently. I could probably get boosted type polish/performance out of it with better range.
Opinions? Thoughts? Recommendations?
