Thank you all !!! You make me blush
What an honor!!!!.....
It certainly is !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
VERY short update, as my stress-hormone level is at a point where
gushes of cortisol is pumping out my ears :
Thanks to the invaluable help from Oz ( you're a star Oz. I owe you big-time man ! )
who walked me through the procedures over the phone, I went through the trails an tribulations
of composing several pages paperwork to the US Department of Transportation that made it
possible to get through the even more complicated paperwork of submitting an application to the
US Environmental Protection Agency who in turn have now granted me at
"Racing Exemption" to the EPA rules, that allows me to enter the bike into the US,
as a racing bike and therefore exempted from the Importation of Motor Vehicle Subject to Federal Air Pollution Regulations
when attached to EPA Form 3520-1 as a "Code L", and the "Carnet" issued by the Danish Chamber of Commerce,
to whom I've paid a deposit , and they in turn have issued a Carnet that will guarantee
to the US Chamber of Commerce that the bike will be returned to Denmark
and therefore no customs or fees will have to be paid to the US Customs
and I also upon arrival fill out DOT Form HS-7 (along with the EPA Form 3520)
as a "Code 8", which is a declaration that I can enter the bike and be exempted from the
Federal Motor Vehicle Safety , Bumper and Theft Prevention Standards
There was a bit more to it, like going to the US Embassy to have none other
than the US Vice Consul to Denmark notarize my signature on the application/permit
and return said signed and notarized paper to EPA in order to make the Racing Exemption valid.
................PHEW , godallmighty!
Now THAT done, it turns out that the American partners to the Danish shipping agent
has somewhat f*cked up royalty and there seams to be a problem with the
whole shipping thing.
I'll get an answer to whether it will work out or not within the next couple of hours.
At the same time I'm working like a madman to get the last few bits on the bike ready.
More later. I'll answer your posts and comments then.
Wish me luck.
