One could build from scratch, a carefully crafted, c/f strengthened, balsa and covered version for pennies on the dollar.
Pennies on the dollar as long as you don't count what your time is worth. If you enjoy building that's not a bad investment for you, I enjoy flying, and building is just a means to an end for me. $185 is a great deal in my opinion. To each his own.
