Moving back to the US from Italy and have an R69 and an R90/6 in Milan that I want to ship to NY.

If anyone knows any reputable shippers, has past experience or has any information that may be helpful, please let me know.

Thanks.

Schrader, funny you mention

Schrader, funny you mention Bruce Frey. I met him personally several years ago in Milan. This morning I sent him a private message because I figured he had shipped his bikes from Milan to the US . . .

Hi Dave, As I mentioned in

Hi Dave,

As I mentioned in response to your PM, my R12 returned to the Stati Uniti in a container along with my other possessions and 120 or so bottles of Italian wine.

A side story is that the bike came back without the engine and transmission. The engine and transmission were being rebuilt in the workshop of a well known parts supplier in CH. The idea was to have the rebuild completed before my shipment was due to leave.

We all know how schedules are with vintage projects and the engine and transmission followed several months later, during which time the U$D dropped almost 20% compared the CHF. Ouch! Another Ouch! was the expense and hassle of dealing with a Customs broker and having to hire a moving company to deal with the gigantic (and heavy) crate.

The things we do.........

Ciao,

Bruce
