Need assorted bits, mainly so Madam stops falling off the back. US $1200 odd. Portugal €2400. YOU WHAT? Anyone found a way of getting this stuff from the US (to England is fine, I'm English and still work there)? I'm told Harley try and stop people exporting to protect their European mark up (wasted on me, at that price I simply won't bother), so one probably Needs To Know A Man. Anyone know a way, please PM me.

€2,400. Divorce would be cheaper.

I have often got US companies to ship stuff in for me.

The last major item was a set of Custom Chrome forward controls from a shop on ebay, for a Sporty.
Total cost £170, including $70 shipping and £28 import tax. They arrived within 4 days of ordering.
Cost in the UK would have been £360.

You can avoid VAT by ordering from http://www.guernseyharleydavidson.com
I spoke to them last week and they even had a black base plate in stock, not that you need a black one.

They also have an ebay shop under their other trading name - http://stores.ebay.co.uk/Offshore-Motorcycle-Parts
I've just noticed they have a belt tension tool.

Failing that you need to find someone visiting the States.
I got my PCIII and a K&N filter "walked in" by another forum member.

Cheers, parts now ordered at around a grand less than rip-off Harley Portugal prices.

:them:

I imported loads of stuff from Zanotti's, very good service and 20% off US prices. Use a Nationwide Debit or Credit Card as they don't sting you the 2.75% $ conversion rate all other card companies charge. Ask the to mark the contents as "Motorcycle Parts" that attracts import duty at 3.5% (plus VAT). If buying jackets etc (again mega cheaper than UK) make sure they mark contents as Parts or Leather Goods (4% duty).
