Any USA inmates have any clue about this and what the cost is? SWAMBO is not going to be pleased at all (if it is $200) and it could set back near term farkeling.

What I meant is $200 is your US tax free allowance, so you pay the tax on the value above $200..

So for me in Canada, the total tax and DHL brokerage fee came to $42, $28 of which is DHL's brokerage fee.

Duh...

Thanks again Gadget Boy. It sometimes helps if you do explanations in crayon...other times I am simply too thick to ken at all.

Got em!

Crashbars and bashplate intact...looks and feels substantial. One problem is the crashbars came without installation instructions. Anyone have a lead on a PDF?

Im going to take all orders through the webshop once ive posted the bars up and have all the shipping calculations sorted.

Hope this helps.

Got both the crashbars and bashplate installed and they went on as if my personal bike was the test bed. Not one single hitch...I am very impressed. BTW Chris I read the disclaimer (winkwink) and should just say right here that these are very stylish bars and should look very good during and after a crash. :)

Many thanks to PackMule for his behind the scenes help.

Judge for yourself. 30mph get-off (for story & pictures click "Salop" in my sig-line).

Right side crash bar took impact of fall and scrape damage:





They got knocked out of line a little and the bracket holding the right-hand bar is bent:



Tyres are scuffed up a little, hand guards too but the only other damage was to the pillion pegs:



The bike itself is absolutely untouched!

Thanks Wildman for offering yourself as the crash tester for these bars! Careless UK farmers Glad to see they saved the bike from serious damage. I'm very pleased with mine and aesthetically, they compliment the lines on the frame of the bike.

Anyone know if there will be a US distributor or will the products only be available from overseas for the foreseeable future? I'll probably be ordering the bash and bars in November and if there is a US dealer then I'll order from them. Just another two of the "must haves" for the bike.

cheers,
Robert

Been away from this thread for a while!

We have decided not to take on any dealers or distributors for one simple reason. if we do we would have to put our prices up considerably. Our products are not cheap to manufacture and we dont cut any corners. The direct distribution has been working well since we sorted our early packaging issues and this wouldnt be improved by having more links in the chain.

The one thing we are looking into is including foreign taxes in the price(ie we pay duty), so what you see is what you pay.
With this in mind, a PM from any of our customers detailing what you ordered, where you are and how much you paid in taxes and admin fees (seperately) would be enormously helpful. There shouldnt be much on them, but we would like to get a firm idea before we attempt to go down this route.

Thanks for your continued support and i hope your parts are doing the business 'in the field'

chris

Cheers Chris. When it comes time to order I know exactly where to look. The "one price" is a good idea and helps avoid any unexpected charges.
