Kickstarter Open Kickstarter in a new window and Fundable Open Fundable in a new window are great sites to help you create a motorcycle project with crowd-funding. Several good ideas have seen the light of day (including the reviewed Screaming Banshee horn - click here to read the complete review Open link in a new window) because of these websites that allow the general public to fund startups without taking equity. But people need get something in return for their money.

And that is where to problems lies with several of these ideas looking for money. You need to offer something valuable in return.

Rockin Rebel Kickstarter

Take this project for example: Rockin' Rebel Open Rockin' Rebel link in a new window on Kickstarter is someone who makes beautiful wooden rocking chairs in the shape of a motorcycle. Really pretty... So you'd expect people to help this guy out by providing him with funds to get proper tools to make more of them. But at the time of writing this, he has gathered $200 of the $50,000 required, and only 8 days left.

Why?

Well, just look at what he gives back in return for your hard earned money. Give him $50, you get a personal thank you from his family! Well, unless his name is Brad Pitt or other famous person, it doesn't really mean anything. Pledge $100 and you get a Rockin' Rebel t-shirt! In other words, your t-shirt is going to cost you one hundred bucks; a lot of money for a t-shirt. Once you reach the $2,500 dollar mark in your pledge, you get the actual rocking motorcycle chair. Quite expensive... while $10,000 gets you a customized one.

It's not like people will flock to Kickstarter to pledge money, no matter how pretty his stuff is. It will mean that his stuff will go for $2,500 per motorcycle, a very steep price, and not exactly a price that many will pay so that their kids have a rocking motorcycle chair. Except maybe Brad Pitt.
