I am trying to purchase a Mercian Touring bike, completly equipted from Mercian in England. After much back and forth (going on over two months now), I was ready to finalize the order, when they tell me its going to be 380 pounds (over $660) to ship me the bike. After I placed my eyes back into their sockets, I asked them about other methods of shipping, as there price ws for Fed Ex international. Have any of my fellow tourists had anything shipped from England to the US, and what kind of shipping did you pay? what methods/companies did you use?
Thanks for any and all info!
