I know you have said many times your on a budget Baxter, You realize how much it would cost to ship a frame to you from the states? Not busting your balls just bringing to light something you may have not thought of.
To ship would cost about $600 plus inport tax. The frame in the US for a 450r is roughly $700. I was quoted from one dealer here in the UK. £1000 plus postage.
The 700xx frame from a Honda dealer in the US is $1700. How much would you think a British dealer would charge me ,On similar lines to the 450r frame.
Even if it was £600 in postage,It is cheaper to buy from the US
I know about the shitty job. I hope things get better in the future. There is no rush. Still working on a few kinks, I think I may have.
I once remember somebody telling me that "That life is better on medication" Chin up and battle on Gary.
