Consider this plan..

Have the seller cut down a large box to fit and then ship it usps parcel select. It should run you $22 without any add-ons.

You may end up waiting for a few months if you choose the first method.

Do a search on the Blast

It is considered one of the worst bikes ever made.. I would look closely at a Kawasaki 250. Also there are two 250 cruisers with a seat height of 27 inches.
