Information on the Importation of a Racing Motorcycle
Attention: The procedure outlined below is to be completed after you have placed your order, submitted a deposit to Rising Sun Cycles and we have supplied you with the necessary Frame Number and photos.
For 2009 and going forward all Racing Motorcycles must be pre-approved to the end user by DOT/NHTSA and the EPA for US Customs Entry.
The information below will explain how
this will be done and supply sample completed documents as well as the
forms you will need to fill out and mail or scan and email to the
correct agency. You will first ask for an approval from DOT/NHTSA. This
approval will be added to the application that will be sent to EPA for
final Racing Exclusion approval and then added to US Customs
Clearance paperwork. If you are using Rising Sun Cycles we will need the
copies of these papers for import clearance otherwise your import broker
will need these forms. This is all a simple process. These agencies work
for us, the taxpayers, and are only making sure that any machines imported
into the USA are properly approved and documented for entry and used for
the purpose you have requested an approval for.
First you will need to acquire 4 pictures of the machine being imported
taken from front,
back and both sides as well as the serial number or frame number of the machine.
(These pictures and needed numbers will be supplied by RSC for machines purchased from us.)
