    Who Imports Bikes from US

    I'm considering importing a bike from the US but don't really have the time to deal with all the details. Does anyone know of a dealer/vendor that imports bikes from the states? Cheers.

    it'd be worth your time to 'deal with all the details'. Basically, 207$ import fee, make sure you get all paperwork done and sent to border crossing before bringing the bike in, or if you are shipping it get a shipper to do it (min $675 to ship in quotes ive seen). Check the state you are buying in for sales tax, most like WA will charge you for it regardless of where the bike is going, and get a warranty letter from the manufacturer/dealer for within canada.

    Don't let anyone fool you, it's SUPER complicated, and seriously TIME CONSUMING.

    If you want it done right, PM me, this offer will not last forever, operators are standing by!

    Never dealt with them before but there's a place I see by my work all the time that I know imports bikes. www.Internationalmotorsports.com You could try contacting them to set something up. Good Luck.

    It's worth it to go with www.chiapetbikeimports.com, the chick they have working at reception is smoking hot and flirty as Hell. Last time I was in there they actually had examples of bikes they had imported for customers, pretty professsional actually.

    I've only used them to import once, pretty straight forward process, you just point them at the bike you want, and they go get it for you. Fast too! The owner seems like he has something wrong with him, he's just a little "off" if you know what I mean.
    Ease into it, you don't want a tear.

    They should really do something to standardize msrp across the borders....its ridiculous the differences between them right now.
