You should read some of his blogs describing his exploits travelling the states, chasing leads, loading the bikes and shipping back to the UK. I read somewhere that he really hit gold when paid some disgruntled old ex Kwaka dealer £60,000 (his insurance money from a back injury when he was a plasterer) for a barn load of NOS parts that retailed for £1,000,000 back home. Some guys have all the luck.

Elements of the past and the future combining to make something not quite as good as either.
International shipping had a major hike this year, I posted about shipping to Canada a few months ago, jumped from around $6.50 to $19.50

I ship about 50 or more packages internationally per month. Over the past few years I have only lost a handful of them while in transit, almost all of them were to Russia. I quit selling to Russia. Ebay makes it pretty easy to ship internationally if you print the labels right of the site. It even fills out the customs forms for you. USPS picks up my packages right at my door.
No need to post your parts on other ebay sites as it looks like you have found out already. Your parts will show up on other ebay sites as long as you offer the international shipping.
On heavy stuff you might want to look into shipping with DHL. DHL can beat USPS pricing but only on heavy stuff. DHL will also pick up right at your door.
Thanks for all the input.
Customs forms SUCK!!! Online would be so much easier.
And then you go, "Well, my brother can jump over, like, 10 garbage cans." and then I'll say something cool like, "if I can keep the front wheel from bursting into flames," okay? and don't forget to call me "THE HANKINATOR."
