    I knew an old dude, he might even still be alive too, who managed to bring back a NSU, when he was done fighting the Japs.

    I've seen those NSR150's in my travels. They look a little cheap, heavy and weird in places. They supposedly do over 90MPH.

    Danger, is my business."

    As I understand it getting the bike into the country and meeting your local requirements are two different things. The local cop may not like your non-DOT lighting but the customs agent won't give a rip...

    From the NHTSA site:
    http://www.nhtsa.gov/cars/rules/impo...ges/page2.html

    8. Importing a vehicle that is at least 25 years old.

    A motor vehicle that is at least 25 years old can be lawfully imported into the U.S. without regard to whether it complies with all applicable FMVSS. Such a vehicle would be entered under Box 1 on the HS-7 Declaration form to be given to Customs at the time of importation. If you wish to see that form, you may download a copy from our website at www.nhtsa.dot.gov/cars/rules/import. You should note that the 25 year period runs from the date of the vehicle's manufacture. If the date of manufacture is not identified on a label permanently affixed to the vehicle by its original manufacturer, to establish the age of the vehicle, you should have documentation available such as an invoice showing the date the vehicle was first sold or a registration document showing that the vehicle was registered at least 25 years ago. Absent such information, a statement from a recognized vehicle historical society identifying the age of the vehicle could be used.
    FMVSS = Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards IIRC

    Or go to the customs site instead;

    What are the requirements for importing classic or antique vehicles / cars for personal use?

    Generally, classic or antique vehicles are exempt from Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Department of Transportation (DOT) pollution and safety requirements.

    If the vehicle is at least 21 years old, there are no EPA compliance requirements upon importation.
    A motor vehicle that is at least 25 years old can be lawfully imported into the U.S. without regard to whether it complies with all applicable DOT Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS).

    If the car is old enough to be exempt from DOT requirements (the same documents that would confirm this for EPA purposes should also address this issue) the importer may check the block on the HS-7 stating the vehicle does not have to conform to DOT requirements.
