Any ideas on how to ship a bicycle from Spain?

I found a 1950's Orbea on ebay which I won for $75; however, UPS wants $542 to ship it. Last time I make this mistake. The problem is the bicycle weights a lot (42lbs boxed) due to fenders, rack and rod brakes and is definitely not in the high end class.

All thoughts or ideas are appreciated. This bike would make a nice addition to a collection but not at that shipping rate.
