Motobins!?!?

Hello. Last night i sent an e-mail to Motobins asking if they will ship to Canada. Today Hotmail send a non-delivery notice. Could anyone out there tell me if they ship to Canada. I calculate a 50-60% savings in parts even after shipping!! Too bad we're getting so ripped-off here in the west, it would be a greater shame if they no longer delivered here!

sales@motobins.co.uk ?

Still delivering to OZ. I think you will find they will ship things to Canada and the US. But not all things owing to
litigation issues
your local importer complaining!!!!

you could try faxing them. +44 (0)1775 680860

Hi Ron, Unfortunatly I think that Continental North America has become a "no ship" zone for many International parts suppliers due to fallout from 9-11. Tightened Customs regs and liability problems are just to much trouble for them. And as I am sure you are well aware most of our friends to the south won't ship here either... Join the UKGSERS and ask to have someone there send you the parts you need. Both motobins and motorworks are good and I might be needing some parts soon also, perhaps we can place a bulk order? cheers, Peter
