A phone call is needed to get specific information from the customer... like model, options, etc. Once final options and the price is established, Customer pays NON-Refundable 1500.00 deposit. When build is finished, customer pays remainder of balance and the Mini will be shipped.
Turn around time for builds is 6-8 weeks. I will try to do my best getting the builds finished faster though. I am hoping for a realistic 4-5 week turnaround.
For all gas versions, a Honda GX160 will be the motor supplied with each gas model. There might be an exception with the HotRods due to size. I tried 3 other motors and none of them would start as easy and run as good as the Honda.
As of mid October 2020, the gas models are still being tested. They will probably be released by mid November or early December.
A conversation takes place to see what the customer is looking for. We discuss options and ballpark figures. Then a NON-Refundable deposit of 1500.00 is given. There will be communication during the build process to make sure customer is happy with build. Once the build is complete, the customer will pay the remainder and the Mini will be shipped.
Getting the business up and running is a good bit more expensive than most would think. I plan to have sales and offer discounts to specific groups once I am more established. Probably looking at mid 2021.
It is possible. Brick and Mortar Dealers are desired, but other dealers are reviewed on a case by case basis. Specific documentation will need to be provided. There will be a 'buy in' required.
