Default how much to complete one nitro bike?

i have a monster truck, and now i am thinking to get a motorcycle, the Nuova Faor SF501 looks good to me, and i want to know how much would it cost me to complete one, because the SF501 does not come with an engine and radio.
and is there a way to put a .21 engine on it, or maybe should i just build a motorcycle from scratch with .21 in mind?

i don't want electric, because then my neighbors would be happy

Doc,
Nuova Faor make electric and nitro versions, the nitro version comes with or without an engine, but everything else is included (tank, ehaust etc) and as with most kits, no radio gear. The nitro bike is designed around the Novarossi C12 or Picco 12 pullstart, side exhaust engines. It is possible, as I have done, to fit a 15 size, SE engine, with a little alteration. HOWEVER, 1/5 bikes are not the easiest things in the world to control, even with a mild electric motor in, so attempting to fit a 21 in would invite almost certain disaster! The best tyres available cannot even cope with a 15 when its on song, never mind a 21! Also the longer length of crankshaft on a 21 would make the gears stick out so far that angle of lean would be severely restricted.
Actually, there is a bike available with a 21, but it is of a different scale, design and looks - Pumilio Tiempo seen best on

Also checkout my site for some old videos of the NF with a Picco XP15 in. [link]http://www.nitrobike.co.uk[/link]
As for prices, I can only recommend Formby Models for mail order [link]http://www.formbymodels.com[/link] or enquire at your LHS

nooooooo don't get a nitro bike. there garbage! they allways brake, after driving it once you gotto rebuild the motor. Its also very dangerous< on the drag srtip youll reach over 200 mph. when your riding on one of those you could die. I would stick to a regular motorcycle.

Its alot safer.
