Question - King City Specialty Bikes (KCSB) produces high-end bicycles. Costs to manufacture and market the bicycles at last year's volume level of 1,800 bicycles per month are shown in the following table:

Variable manufacturing per unit \$229.00

Total fixed manufacturing \$208,800

Variable nonmanufacturing per unit \$51.00

Total fixed nonmanufacturing \$270,000

KCSB expects to produce and sell 2,200 bicycles per month in the coming year. The bicycles sell for \$640 each.

An outside contractor makes an offer to assemble 900 of KCSB's bicycles per month and ship them directly to KCSB's customers as orders are received from its sales force. It will charge KCSB \$155 per bicycle. KCSB would provide the materials for each bicycle, but the outside contractor would assemble, box, and ship the bicycles. If KCSB accepts the offer, its variable manufacturing costs would be reduced by 45% for the 900 bicycles assembled by the outside contractor, and its variable nonmanufacturing costs for those 900 bicycles would be cut by 60%. In addition, it would be able to save \$20,880 of fixed manufacturing costs; fixed nonmanufacturing costs would be unchanged.

KCSB's marketing manager thinks that it could sell 90 specialty racing bicycles per month for \$6,000 each, and its production manager thinks that it could use the idle resources to produce each of these bicycles for variable manufacturing costs of \$4,900 per bicycle and variable nonmanufacturing costs of \$400 per bicycle.
