Well cudak888, I can't answer the question about the shipping rates, but I will hijack your thread just a bit.
I have been looking at ebay, and found an interesting Centurion for sale. Seller is in Melbourne. States clearly that he/she will ship to the US for $10. Later in the listing he/she states for local pickup only.
I chatted with a live person at ebay chat, and she told me that apparently the seller would be obligated to send me the bike for $10. Now, something tells me that THERE IS NO WAY A BIKE IS GOING TO MAKE IT ALL THE WAY FROM AUSTRALIA TO WASHINGTON STATE FOR $10.
I can tell you that shipping a fifty pound box via USPS to Singapore would run from around $237 to $87 or so depending on whether you want to get it there fast, or slow (as in slow boat slow). Your maximum dimensions would be: Dimensions: Max. length 42", max. length plus girth 79.
No cracks about USPS, I do work for the Postal Service.
Still wish that De Rosa frame was about 2 cm smaller
. 'Cuz it would be happily living in my downstairs right now if it were a 44-46 cm.
TRY EMPATHY & HAVE LOVE IN YOUR HEART, PERHAPS I'LL SEE YOU ON THE ROAD...
