San Fran Cycles manually manufactures three unique bicycle models: racing, touring and basic. All of the skilled craftspeople employed at San Fran can make each of the three models. Because it takes about a year to train each craftsperson, labor is a fixed production constraint over the short term. For 2013, the company expects to have available 34,000 labor hours. The average hourly labor rate is $30. Data regarding the current product line follow:
