A little over four years ago, my father-in-law bought a CJ750 from Shao Yiqi at CJSidecar in China. http://www.cjsidecar.com/ Last year, he decided to ship it by sea freight to store it at my place, as he couldn't get it into Thailand where he lives. The bike arrived in Los Angeles, where we had another shipping company pick it up and truck it to Denver. After some paperwork with the Customs folks at the airport, we drove over to the warehouse and picked up one enormous crate. When we got it home to Wyoming, we dismantled the crate from around the bike, backed it off the trailer into the snow. After ten minutes or so of "some assembly required" stuff, and thirty minutes of cleaning the oily rust preventive coatings off the chrome parts, this is what came out: a 24 HP sidevalve "flathead" bike with a four-speed with reverse gear, painted to resemble its 1930s-1940s BMW forebears: I had only to add fuel and the bike fired right up with little fuss. I enjoyed a good six months of riding and fiddling with the bike, getting it running well at altitude, before my father in law finally came to visit (he lives in Thailand) and got a chance to ride his toy. He apparently enjoyed the ride, because he has now bought a second CJ750, which will be delivered soon. I thought I'd use this thread to walk through the process so others who may be interested will know what to expect if they import one of these bikes directly from China. I plan to explain the paperwork here, along with the various import forms necessary to bring the bike into the U.S. and get it registered. More to come . . . ..
