fl400 wanted in UK
« on: January 13, 2006, 05:16:05 AM »
Hi, im new to all this but i need some help. I live in the UK and i really want a pilot, but most of the ones that come up for sale here (and that is rare) have seen better days, does any one know of a recommended person or company that can source one and ship it to the UK, i have the money (just waiting for a nice pilot). If you can help contact me at d.wild1@btinternet.com

How about a bit of a description for what you are looking for?

Does it have to be all original? Are you looking for mint, hardly used, or a mechanically sound machine in good looking shape?

What's your price range?

NO!!!NO!!!NO!!! Not gonna happen!!!!! We have sent enough Pilots out of the states as  it is since those Aussie guys started riding....Next thing you know, we'll be having to pay to get them shipped back in....So...With that said,let it be known....NO MORE PILOTS WILL BE SHIPPED OUT OF THE US!!!!!!!!!!  Maybe we can get Bush to sign it or something....That doesn't go against NAFTA guidelines does it?

Glad you got one...Don't hear much from the Irish concerning the Pilots...Are the selling prices in Ireland close to the US prices?Higher/lower? If lower, maybe we should buy all of theirs up and bring them to the US to replace all those that have been shipped out.... :lol:

There are a few around over there but not that many and I think the price is driven by sales on the internet (eg eBay in the USA) so they're not cheap.  I bought mine from a guy in Belgium.  He had bought it new in France when he lived there.  After he moved up to Belgium he started a family and the pilot had to go.  We set the price based on how much they were in USA.
