Looking for a subframe

It's a long shot but it can't hurt to ask. I had a rather bad off during the Baja GB in Wales last weekend, and I need a new subframe for my 950 Adv.

Has anyone by any chance got one for sale?

Thanks.

Have a brand new from a -11 990R but shipping would probably make it impossible to sell outside of Sweden and I want a premium price considering its brand new.

Also have one that is used and might be slightly bent that I'll let go for much less, shipping might still be to much since its so bulky.

Interesting...

Any chance you could investigate what the shipping would cost to the UK please? And what sort of price would you be asking for the used one? I can get one from the US for about £150 but I'd have to pay import tax, which wouldn't apply if I buy from inside the EU.

Thanks.

If you can have it shipped for £150 even if having to pay taxes there is no way I can match that.

Not sure about dimensions but with a guesstimate I end up just shy of £100 just for shipping from Sweden, they sure know how to charge for shipping unless you have a company and ship lots of stuff then you can send anything for next to nothing.

Do you have dimensions and weight? Could look up shipping cost more exact if so.

Standby, I've a feeling my brother has one hidden away 'just incase'. I'll contact him in a few hours. In NI so shouldn't cost much to ship.

Looked a little better at the prices and seems around £60 if buying at the post office, and for some reason if I would buy the same service online they want a terrifying £250 for some reason, stupid postal office.

I have one in Surrey, do not really want to part with it, but if you are really stuck maybe we could do a deal where you replace it when you or I can find another.

Thanks for all the offers of help! I'm just waiting to see what Icerider's brother has to say before I go ahead.
