Shocking, but not too surprising. :-(

It may not be greed of the seller but greed of the federal postal system

Have him shop around.

Check out Canada Post rates


They tend to be brutal on larger packages.

Other carriers such as FedEx may be considerably cheaper.

Jerry, 2 Wheels go in an oversize box charged for volume as much as weight (which should be low). It can easily be half a bike in cost. There is usually some documentation or service charge to get it across the border. Canada always wants to torture me on cost coming or going.

$55 Canadian, wouldn't be bad.
