I am working on a plan to ship a few airhead bikes by container to Australia next year. I believe i could send them quite inexpensively if i sent them en mass and shared expenses I would plan on building wooden crates and forms to keep the solidly placed. Load them up and send them by ship to say... Melbourne. After a great month ride, I would pack them up again and send them home to the US. Here is a couple of questions... How many is a reasonable amount to ensure least damage and most security for a 20 and 40 foot container? What is the cost for a 20 & 40 foot container from LA or Oakland? (i believe it could be under 2k...) If it takes off, I may have some space for other bikes as well. Does anyone else have the same interest in getting your bike to the the land of OZ from the US?
