bring money - this place is not cheap

A motorcycle/scooter repair shop is very much in need in San Pedro. My HondaExpress needs experienced attention from time to time and we only have golf cart mechanics on the island...to my knowledge. More and more motorcycles and scooters are arriving on the island all the time...and, many are sold on the island at the Hardware Stores. A motorscooter rental was on the island last year...but, I believe, no longer so. Good luck.


Gone fishing!!

The Belize mainland has fantastic on and off-road riding. 100's of miles of logging roads and single track trails. Very easy to get lost though when off-road.
San Pedro is limited now due to development. It's now a fairly easy ride to the Bocalar Chica area. Used to be a pretty hard ride.
With more bikes showing up here, a guy knows what he's doing, he could probably do ok with a small shop here in SPR. he won't get rich though. Parts aren't that hard to get, just takes time. I'm not sure about the parts availability for the off-brands that are showing up in SPR. I doubt if the local sellers have any parts stock at all. The Mennonites that are importing the off-brands do have a good parts stock though in Spanish Lookout.
Lime still rents scooters.

I got a job for your right away! Been trying to get some young Belizeans to make me a bicycle front wheel drive motor like the ancient Solex of fifty years ago. Make me one for $150 USA from a weed eater motor, to attach to a bicycle and I'll buy. Even help you form a company to produce them. I tried last year to get the local trade school, called ITVET in San Ignacio to do that, but they said the students weren't interested in applied mechanical skills. Too bad, the Mennonites do well at it.
Checked SOLEX in Hungary last week, but they changed the engine of old, to a new type to work off unleaded gas and the style and price went way too high for a profit making idea. You need a 36 to 1 gear I would think and a V shaped groove in a Santa Maria wood pully to drive the tire when the motor is lowered down by hand. A lawn mower throttle. All that stuff is here, just needs somebody to put it together. New Weedeaters sell here for $150 USa, so just a motor with gear and grooved driver for the tire, should be able to do it for a little less. If it can be done, there is a business in it I would think. At least I'm willing to try. Just too old myself anymore to diddle with this sort of stuff again.
