  1. Hi, got the pimped aprilia rs250- and the banshee motor just arrived from the USA,in a box. It's now time to send the whole lot to Steve at the twostrokeshop to be massaged into a fire breathing 420cc two stroke with all the bling.

    How do I get it there? Does anyone know a cheap transport company or experiences of shipping by train if possible. Quotes I have got are close to a grand, which seems a lot, looked at bike nut but thats expensive, anyone knows of backloads going that way?

    JUst looking for some links / recommendations of someon that might have done this before.

  2. Bikes Only. Use to cost me about $450 to ship my bike down to PI from the Sunshine coast in QLD. About 1900k's
    Farked if I would put it on a train unless it did not start.
