Smile Buying Honda PC800 in USA (around Seattle)

Hello the HUBB,

We are now doing a trip on the world with motorcycles. We take plane from China to Vancouver the 17th of july.

Our question is : is it easy to buy 2 Honda Pacific Coast (PC800) in the Seattle state in USA ? Where to buy and how much do they cost in USA ?

Thank you very much,
Hub & Lyl

Those PC800's are a pretty rare bike! only something like 20 thousand in the whole world.
I think you would be better to look for 2 NT700 if you want built in luggage and a Honda V-twin.

A Google search says there are a couple currently for sale by separate owners near Seattle, and registering a bike here is pretty easy for a non-resident. However, per the above this is not a common bike (and it's been a while since they were produced, so whatever you find might have issues), so you're not going to have many to choose from. What's your plan if you show up in Seattle, examine the couple which are for sale, and don't want one or both of them?

Normal approach to this sort of purchase would be to contact sellers wherever they are, then make arrangements to go there. Heading for a specific city--especially a relatively small one like Seattle, population <one million--with a very specific plan like yours seems to me problematic.

I am not going to tell you how much they cost because you can do the same Google search as me and find the same bikes for sale.

Hope that's helpful, and good luck!

Mark
