Some of us can laugh about a joke on the internet and not get but hurt. Just to make you feel better I happen to have a job... sometimes

Hey buddy


Your best bet is to use a free app called "USHIP". It works like this;

Ya post your bike, where it is and where its going. It'll calculate the weight or whatever

then you have a time slot where different companies will Bid on your post.

Pick tha cheapest or whichever one has the best ratings. I mostly go for Vet's.

I forgot the guys I had ship my bike to LA from FL, but it cost me around 600 bucks after taxes.


Good luck and have fun at born free. :cheersmate:

I'm on a list for guys who build mostly race bikes, which means they ship a LOT. One recomended option was Fastenal. They have a "third party logistics service" which will ship goods from any one of their locations to any other. It has to be in a sturdy crate and mounted on a pallet (with no overhang) for insurance to cover it, but I'd expect that's a non issue if you can build a chopper.
