Kit: $35,000
Engine: $25,000 (give or take $5000)
Labor: $40,000 (figure one man year @ $20/hr)

I'm betting you'd have a hard time getting a Berkut from it's owner for $100K.
If I ever get that far I sure wouldn't want to start over again. The above

The highest price I've ever heard for a Long EZ is $55k. (Compared to the
