Yep, Did it! I'm making this thread becuse I've never seen one before and this could be really helpful to other people (I know it would've been helpful to me) so lets start off at what I got..I got a complete Honda hobbit with a Dr.70cc kit totally decked out and A big box of jets/covers/roller/belts/and everything else on a hobbit from this lady for 20 bucks..she bought it from a guy (who i'm guessing is on moped army) totally decked the hobbit out it wasn't running when I got it but a quick carb clean and some fresh fuel made her purrrr..Heres a attached photo of her "new project" (thats why she selling the hobbit) she got it for 2500 bucks in San Fran bay area and had it shipped by Uship for a extra 500 bucks..She did get the orignal paperwork and receipt and all of the dealer brochures
Anyways i'm getting off topic heres the bike I got came with bunch of parts and different manuals on it..
So that was one of the bikes the other was a complete puch magnum I got..So fast forward a couple days I was getting kinda worried I wouldn't have any economical way to get this back that was harsh on my wallet (these are mopeds) Uship was going to be like 600+ for both bikes that wasn't a option I've always heard about greyhound but never tried it So I did some estimating on there website and it would of been cheaper then anything else...So I was going to break down the bike. For the hobbit I took the whole subframe with rear wheel and engine assembly off and separated everything else and the magnum I took wheels,seat,tank,and shocks off with all the other little things on the bike and was left when the frame/swingarm with engine attached and a box of parts. This process was terrible I was breaking them down with hardly any tools (that's why I didn't take apart the rest of the hobbit and couldn't get the magnum engine off) and on top of all that TX is hot as shit god damn it was hot..100 plus (at least it felt like coming from SoCal..) So after tearing the bikes down as much as I could I went to walmart and bought 400sq ft of bubble wrap one square 30 inch box and 400 yards of duct tape packing tape and got to work..A few hours pass and I'm done..Here's a pic of what the finshed product looks like
There's 5 iteams there one box and 4 other pieces..I used the boxx to put all the little covers,bolts,chains and all the other small stuff that would fit..So I brought it to The greyhound that was only 2 miles from where I was staying and there where closed it sucked So I ended up taking it to the one it Austin (even though they don't pick up there phones for shit) I took my chance and they were open after weighing (215lbs and 5 boxes between 30 and 40 in long side) and messureing everything my total was $385.72 total (Sh$%) Still way better than Uship but not good enough..So I was talking to the guy that was assisting me and he mention to try Busfreighter.com So while waiting in the lobby I went on the website and put my package in and there were a few different options $210.00 and its delivered straight to my door or different options inbetween I choose the $157.54 (alot better) one that I have to pick it up from the facilty that's in Santa
Ana right by my house (they call me when It arrives and I have 3 days to pick it up before they start charging a storge fee) So Still talking to him and he said somethimes it comes out even cheaper He will call me if I does..I get a Call from them saying it went down in price and it is now $83.76 and it will arrive monday because there is a bus leaving austin going to LA tonight and then will be transported Sunda but I got a tracking number and a $800.00 insurance on my iteams..I also figured out while I was there is the size limit was 87in for a package (most of the cases depneding on where your going) So I could've taken off some stuff to make it under the weight limit (100lbs) and shipped the whole bike So I would barely break a sweat.
*I will update this when I recieve my package and make sure all is good and let you guys know how it went*
