i am engineer and wanted to ask that how much gold will it take me to make 1 of those motorcycles and how much profit will i gain from them?

my friend is one too and from what I have seen to make the motorcycle if you can't make the titansteel bars I think its going to cost you at least 500g to make, but then again it matters your server's economy.

The vendor bought parts cost 12.5k gold. You also need 2 Arctic fur, and 12 Titansteel bars. The value of those is going to vary depending on realm, on mine they're running between 250-300g a piece, so 3000-3600g (even if you craft them yourself, using them instead of selling them represents negative profit) plus the furs... which I haven't even checked for, but I'd guess at least 100g per... So, you're looking at about 18,000g for your bike. Because of the hefty price tag, I wouldn't even bother making them for sale, except on a commission basis. How many people have 20k sitting on their bank alt? And of those, how may either have an engineer alt, or a friend who'll make it for them at cost? So you're probably not going to see a lot of money for making the bike.

You're looking @ 12,500g worth of parts from the vendor in K3 once you've gotten the schematic. you also have to put together 12 Titansteel bars, 40 handfuls of cobalt bolts and 2 Artic Fur (hope you know a skinner).I've seen them on the AH for 15000g on my server, but who knows if they're selling at that price. With all the vendor purchasable mounts ranging from 8000 to 20000g there may be a market for them...my engineer is building one for himself and will happily build one if someone else fronts the cash.if you want to make money as an engineer, use your zapthrottle mote extractor and sell the Eternals (esp air) on the AH.

dish out 12k gold just for the mats from K3, then cash for the crafted mats if you buy them. and you won't make much profit as many people won't trust you with 12k gold :\
