Re: shipping a whizzer
Ups and now fed x i believe have large freight item shipping probably cost as much as the bike. There is also that railway express that changed it's name. I can't for the life of me remember what it is called. DHL or something like that. Any of them might ship it for you. I personally would insure the heck out of it.
I don't guess you could have the seller buy a bus ticket for it and pack it a cheese sandwich.
