Looking forward to watching the progress!
Just a thought...If you (or anyone) can put together a reasonable parts list with instructions, that alone could be valuable. People may pay meagerly for this. If you purchase said parts list (in bulk) and offer to sell a kit with instructions I think you could at least make cycling money. Maybe one kit with all the heavy stuff at a higher price and higher shipping, and one kit with the heavy, non-machining stuff left out (to be purchased locally)?Nope, not a business at all. If it becomes a business I will stop building the starters.
