DALE--THE FOLLOWING IS IN NO WAY RELATED TO YOU; (as I looked at your auctions and it appears you are selling primarily new frames.) And yes, shipping frames abroad is often more work that it's worth............unless you happen to be selling a Rene Herse.

This is merely a follow-up to a subject of "not shipping out of the United States" that David Bilenkey brought up:

I'm always amazed at folks who are selling vintage bicycle parts but who REFUSE to ship outside of the United States. In my opinion, these people are either mentally challenged, do not like money, ..........OR BOTH.

I win all sorts of auctions under my pseudo-ebay name(s) from sellers with the "Freedom Fries" seller mentality. The item is then shipped to the big "blue state" of California, put back up for auction, and promptly shipped overseas.

The irony of it all is that 95% of the time the item that the U.S. seller is offering to the U.S. market ONLY is made either in Italy or France....................
