From my understanding it's all because of the machining, which the Striker requires none of.

Machining, Insurance, Legal set up USG is incorporated.

I would recommend liability advice and insurance especially with a hybrid. There is no shortage of stupid in the world today.

I would re-do your website banner.. the image is way too tiny and should be re-done.

judging from how your current website looks, I would not trust the site and I would not order from it to be honest.

I will do your website for you, at a discount since you are a member of spudfiles and I like to support the cause of spudding.

PM me if you are interested.

I second the idea david make the site for you. Did you make the site for your drafting service? That site is MUCH better, and professional.

It's the manufacture of components that make the Venom more expensive. Machining, welding and anodizing are expensive (if your not doing them yourself).

Moonbog,

If your not already, might look into anodizing your own parts. I've done it myself and its not that hard. The pros charge a mint for something that only takes some tubs, chemicals and electrons.

Just remember;
Ventilation is key. You are, after all, making H2O into H and O.

I agree insurance is a must (or one hell of a waver).

The site looks like a good start. Both web sites and fine wine get better with time.

All good stuff here. Thanks everyone. I will consider everything carefully. About the size of the web page...I use go daddy (as you can see) and I don't know how to make it wide screen. They have templates that I go off of and If I can't figure it out I will ask for help.
Thanks again for comments, criticisms and suggestions.

c11man,
Hydrogen and oxygen are by products of anodizing. You end up breaking water molecules.

Kind of off topic, I know.

I have briefly looked into anodizing my own parts, and there is some significant initial costs to be taken into consideration. So, I decided to grab a rag and some goop and polish instead.
