Importing vintage vehicles

Postby Sinkingslowly » Sat Nov 25, 2017 4:12 pm

Does anyone have experience of importing vintage motorbikes.

We have two old Brit bikes that we would like to bring with us but not if the cost is prohibitive.

Of course if the Greek tax is based on "price when new" then we wont be liable for much :D

What a great idea ..I have a hankering for a BSA c15 like I had when I was a teenager ...I don't know anything about importing Bikes but if it is like a car ...the rule is get all the paper work done and dusted before you bring the bikes over ...and declare them when you arrive. Don't wait the 6 months you are aloud to use them here , and then try to register them with Greek plates ....don't ask me how I know ..... :?

If you are moving here for the first time and bringing them with you as personal possessions then you can do it quite cheaply providing, as Jeff says, you go through the paperwork exercise first.
