shipping crate availabe soon
« on: August 13, 2011, 08:47:57 pm »

Anyone slightly mad and thinking about traveling the world. I Will have a shipping crate available around mid November if anyone is looking to ship a bike out of SA.  Will make it out of thin wall square tube as I have never found a place that had "certified" wood that some countries require.  Will be set to fit BMW 1200 GSA but could be adapted to others.  Takes a bit of work to put these together and I just hate to throw them away.  Picture of the one I made for the Buell at http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/tstories/thode/2008_12.php
Looks like we will fly bike into Johannesburg, but this may change.   
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but  rather a slide in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, body totally worn out and screaming "Woo Hoo what a ride"

I can help you with certified timber for export.
No matter how much you push the envelope, it'll still be stationery.

It is yours if you can use it, as I will ride north and will ship out of Europe in a few of years.  I may need to have you pick it up at shipping point when I pick up bike.  Many details to work out, will keep you posted as the pieces fall in place.  :ricky:

  Sounds like you have a good idea if no one else jumps in.  Plan to arrive in Johannesburg on the 22 of Nov.  Will keep you posted.
