get me an FBM, why are american made frames so god damn expensive?

 

ANYTHING THAT IS AMERICAN MADE 90% OF THE TIME IS HIGHER QUALITY.

 

BUT THE MAIN THING IS THE LABOR COSTS TO MAKE IT HERE IN THE STATES

RATHER THAN SENDING THE PRODUCT OVERSEAS (CHINA) TO BE MASS PRODUCED

AT MINIMAL LABOR COSTS, BUT DEFINATLEY WITH CHEAPER WELDS AND ALL AROUND QUALITY.

 

PLACES LIKE JAPAN AND GERMANY WOULD BE HELLA EXPENSIVE TO HAVE MAKE OUR STUFF.

 

THATS WHY WHEN "WE" MAKE ANYTHING HERE IN THE USA WE SHOULD MAKE IT THE BEST AND AS FAST AS WE CAN WHILE STILL MAINTAINING QUALITY STANDARDS.

 

BECAUSE THERE'S ALWAYS A BIG-WIG TRYING TO MAKE A BUCK BY SENDING YOUR JOB OVERSEAS TO SAVE ON PAYING YOU THE HIGHER WAGE.

 

PEACE-

I wouldnt argue there. FBM and S&M are awesome frames. But the cost is expensive..one day, one day I will own an american frame

I know dude , but it's a project for myself and my 5 year old son . My Dad was never around to do anything cool like that with me as a kid , I figured it would be fun . Nina is giving me some new bars , neck , cranks for it . Evan wants mags but I'm trying to talk him into some Peregrine HP-48's . :cool:
