Any Indian service / nice person to post 2 bikes to Mexico against reasonable fee ?

Is there any service or someone here available in India to send me a bike to Mexico ? I need to play with one before purchasing a good number. Or do the guys in this forum think I can ask the bike seller in India to send me a "sample" which I would pay for of course ?

I would like to order a BSA de luxe and an Ladies Supreme

Thank you

I bought one Indian bike (Arpan) from a fellow that imported several into the US and assembled it myself. Among other things, it comes with wheels disassembled, so there more be more to the assembly than you would anticipate.

This company imports one brand of Indian bike:

Check on their "sale" listing, they may have a reduced price there, and seems like they do sell it cheaper if you want to assemble it yourself.

I remember one previous post where a fellow had talked to an Indian manufacturer, and they were perfectly willing to send him a single bike. The catch was, they wouldn't quote shipping until he had ordered it. I don't recall which company that was.

There was someone selling Chinese "Flying Pigeon" bikes in the New York area, you might google around for them as well.

The word "scam" leaps to mind for some reason.
