CHIP IN FOR THE KOMMUNAL TRUCK
FOR MEMBERS. DRIVEN BY MEMBERS. HELP US RAISE 10K!
One of the big pieces missing at Kustom Kommune is bike and parts transport. Every other day we get requests for pick ups, break downs and hauling gear around town. We want to fix this by hooking up members with thier own decked out shop truck for all haulin’ needs.
WHATS THE PLAN?
We aim to continually grow our offerings to members, whether it be new facilities, better deals from service providers and simply adding more value to becoming a part of the crew. If we all chip in we’ll be able to add something rad to the list.
This year we’re aiming to add a decked-out shop truck to the ever growing list of ‘cool shit’ you get from being a part of the Kommune crew. The shop truck is 100% for members and is available to use when ever you need it. Need to get your bike to the Kommune? Come grab the keys and take the truck. Need to haul some gear to the painters? Come grab the keys and take the truck. Wanna chuck some fully sick Chap-Laps? ...if the trucks available it's yours to use. The truck is for members, driven by members. We’ll be able to use it as a backup vehicle on rides and to haul gear on our planned camping trips.
WILL THERE BE A COST TO USE THE TRUCK?
We’ll introduce a completely optional $69 fee to the annual membership if you need access to the vehicle. This will go towards costs associated with keeping the truck on the road; to cover insurance, rego, maintenance and keeping it in top notch running condition. We estimate these costs to be around $4000 a year, and with 80+ members taking the option each year we’ll be able to cover costs and ensure its always running smooth.
WHAT WILL WE BUY?
Something rad. We don’t want to buy a junker that needs loads of work and will continuously break down, and the general consensus is that we don't want anything 'vanilla'. Ideally we’d like to find something thats ready to roll or is nearly done and we can do some 'truck build days' to make it ours, something that turns heads and is damn fun to drive. A truck along the lines of a V8 1970s Ford F100 would fit within a 10k budget, if we raise more we'd be able to go older or a hotter build eg, 60s C10 / F100. We could settle for the likes of a Holden Rodeo or Toyota Hilux but thats pretty dull. But, it all depends on how much we all chip in!
We'll also deck out the ute with everything we need to tow or assist with break downs: Tie downs, Wheel locks, Air Compressor, Tool Kits, Jump Starter, Fuel cans, Ramps etc.
Other costs associated with buying a vehicle:
Insurance: Approx <$2000.00 per year (covers unnamed drivers of various ages)
On Roads (rego/rwc/transfer fees): $1200.00
Fit out: $1000.0 (Tool Kit, Air Compressor, Fuel cells, Tie downs, Ramps, etc)
Sign Writing: $1500.00
Shipping/transport (if interstate): <$800
WHY DOESN'T KUSTOM KOMMUNE JUST BUY ONE?
As many know, Kustom Kommune is a social enterprise and a labour of absolute love for the team. The workshop doesn’t have the funds to buy a vehicle, if we did we absolutely would as we know what a huge benefit it would be to our crew! A small bit of change from all our members makes a huge difference in making things like this possible. Kustom Kommune will chip in $2000 to get things started and spend the time ensuring we can get the best deal possible.
