Sending to Europe(2 posts)

Sending to Europedpp
Sep 14, 2002 4:45 AM
Any advice on sending my NEW bike to Europe? I'm here (in Europe) the bike is in CA. Called UPS- 290USD! that is before the customs. I could claim it used, little value...?

I tried that too, but gave up the idea when I found out about the shipping + duty + sales tax. $290 is about as low as you can get for air. EC duty on a complete bike is 16% + 16-22% sales tax depending in which EC country you are in.
