Importing Scooters/Bikes

5 posts in this topic

Posted

With all of the cool bikes and scooters ( and even cars) available elsewhere, is there any possible way to bring them into the U.S. for private use? There has to be a way other than waiting for them to be 25 years old. I remember there was a 'grey market' loophole back in the 80s, but I think that's been closed.

Not sure how laws are up there, but here emissions regulations make it almost impossible to bring in anything older than a few years, taxes are another big issue, almost doubling the price.

When vacationing in Mexico, I saw some cool scooters and small bore bikes that are generally unavailable in the states. Heck, they even sell them at Walmart!
