Bikes for sale Bikes For Sale

 

Please note that the quality of the bikes is reflected in the price, we only sell quality bikes or price others accordingly, and we are often too honest for our own good! Maybe this is why we are the countries leading experts on Triples - if you want to gamble then buy from an unknown and uneducated source? We can relate countless stories from people that have paid top prices for Triples (H2's especially) from other sources and then have then had to hire a van to bring the bike to us to have the many faults corrected.

If you need any more information or would like further photographs, just email us at the address above. Click on pictures for a larger image

(You might be interested to know that most of these bikes would cost around 110.00 to insure FULLY COMPREHENSIVE! - "agreed value" and also including breakdown cover - with some of them also being "Tax exempt" that is cheap biking!)

 

If you want to get an idea of prices, check out our previously sold bikes page.

 

 

GREAT NEWS!

 This means that virtually ANY Japanese bike you buy and I ship that was made BEFORE 1984

 will enter the U.K. at 5% Duty as opposed to the 30"ish"% that we have been paying for years :)

1st February 2014  - 16?

 

 

NOVA (Notification Of  Vehicles Arriving) & Required Dating evidence

 

Well, what an out and out total MESS the Government made with this scheme! Basically from 1st April any imported vehicle that you tried to register had to be issued with a "NOVA" number by the HMRC, they set themselves up to deal with all the imports from Europe (which, apparently was the original problem with people not paying the VAT) what they didn't take into account was the THOUSANDS of vehicles that were already here and undergoing restoration no-one was able to register an old vehicle for the first three weeks of April, they then held their hands up and allowed the registrations on a temporary basis.

 

It would now appear that they are caught up and ALL vehicles now have to have a NOVA before the DVLA will accept an application for registration. With the impending closure of all local DVLA offices it would appear that all registrations are now done through Swansea, so expect a week to 10 days for the turn around.

Some other good news is that I am One of the few people that is allowed to issue age certificates to date a vehicle for an age related plate, with all the new people at the DVLA they are following the registration process to the letter and you have to apply to the original manufacturer for dating evidence or myself! I have been authorised by the DVLA to date bikes for over 20 years, this has just been re-confirmed for current applications.

 

Here's the latest : As of April 15th 2013 EVERY vehicle now needs a NOVA, for a vehicle Imported before April 15th you will need the HMRC  C&E 389 or the older C&E 386 along with a bill of sale, you will then have to send these papers to the Personal Transport Unit in Dover and they will look into whether or not the correct duty was paid at the time of Import. Once the number has been issued you then follow the normal procedure using dating evidence or the original title to get an age related plate. Your local DVLA office no longer process these applications, they are all now done from Swansea. However, whilst the local offices are in their death throws I suggest that you put your application into there and let them send the papers to Swansea, that way you will at least have a receipt to say that you handed all the correct paperwork in - Horror stories of lost paperwork en route to Swansea are already appearing.

Any bike imported after 15th April should have been automatically been put onto NOVA by the Importer. There will however still be some HUGE glitches, often the numbers on the U.S. titles are innacurate at best, 2 are's written a "Z"s, slashes & hyphens appear everywhere and whilst I put these down as written on the title for the Import paperwork the M.O.T. over here could have a totally different number which would not be pulled up on the NOVA / DVLA database . . . it's a mess!

Having just put a 100 or so onto the "NOVA" it would appear that there is a particular problem for Yamaha owners, Yamaha chassis numbers generally start with 3 digits then a hyphen and then more numbers, the NOVA system has no facility to insert hyphens it rejects the numbers every time, so you either have to leave the hyphen out or miss out the first 3 numbers and the hyphen, as we all know in this computer age, all these numbers need to tally or they will be rejected, so when the M.O.T. man puts in the hyphen it won't get linked to the right places.

And a word of warning, if you are Importing a bike Via a shipping agent, make sure that they do the NOVA for you, there is a hefty DAILY fine for every vehicle not on the NOVA scheme within 2 weeks of entry.

So, 11th september, my local office rejects my applications as they don't have a NOVA, Down in Cardiff a pal walks in to the DVLA there and his gets accepted as the bike was imported before April 15th . . what an absolute F*ck up!

 

        

 

Here's the January 2012 Pics  . . Brrrr.....

And it was FAR colder this Year in 2013!

 

            

        

      

 

    

 

 

 

2012  was actually the mildest Winter  since records began in Michigan

 we DID actually load in the snow but it was only a few inches and tolerable

.

.What a difference a Year made! - 2013 was, and still is One of the longest winters, when "Spring" arrived in 2012 it was 83 degrees and I went out on a H2, when spring arrived this year it snowed . . . and the snow came and stayed .  . . . and stayed  . . .  until mid MAY!

But, we got the container loaded! :) -  It has been delayed by a couple of weeks but is due Mid May.

 

 

 

                   

 

If I thought 2013 was bad then 2014 is . . . and continues to be FAR worse! It started snowing Mid November and before Christmas we had the annual amount of snow fall, Making loading a container in January Impossible!

In fact Leelanau County, where we load out of, has had more Snow than anywhere else in Michigan. Over 16 feet of snow has fallen  . . . so far!

 It's a nice enough bike - but even with the black cylinders, expansion chambers and 50 + other errors on the bike would anyone in the U.K. pay the 10,220+ purchase price and have it cost a total of 15,286 Landed in the U.K. ?

 

 

We can ship ANY classic bike from the U.S. - - ask for a quote

 

 

Keep an  eye out for posters of the lovely Louise on One of the nicest H2's I have ever owned   -  One day  . . .

Got a bike to bring in from the U.S ? - RB's Generally has the bike in England for less than 900 PLUS taxes

 

Please note : a  FULLY refundable deposit secures any bike - actual landed price will vary slightly due to exchange rate and taxes etc

All bikes will come with Taxes & Duties paid (even with the VAT increase!) & documentation to provide an age related plate - Prices are only a guestimate until entry into the U.K. The fluctuation with the / $ rate has a BIG impact on Import Duties & Fees.

 

   

 

 

 

We ship from the U.S. several times a year (North Michigan), if you are struggling to move a bike that you have purchased over there then please contact us - We may be able to help.
