That is not a Hummer or a "S" series bike. It is an
Aermacchi Harley. Wrong forks, rear shocks,seat and other
things to be correct for that bike. Maybe a 1974 Z-90.
Frame and motor #'s should start with 3D and end with a
3,4,5 meaning 1973,74, or 75 year model. got any more
pic's?

Ron I think I looked at the bike you are talking
about. It's orange with a black design on the tank. It is
not a Hummer. If it's a Harley it is one of the Italian
lightweight bikes.

Ron,

You are right to seek contacts in Canada about bringing
this bike into Canada - you need to research the issues
based on Canadian laws and regulations - before you make
the deal.

You may actually have two different issues - importation,
and then getting a title.

Problems with importing a vehicle into Canada MAY have to
do with meeting Canadian safety standards - not with
having a title.

Each country has different safety standards, and
manufacturers build the cars/bikes to meet the standards
of the country the are intended to be sold in. These
standards usually relate to emissions controls, lights,
and glass. A new Porsche designed for sale in Germany
will not meet US or Canadian standards, so you can not
import one without extensive modifications.

Many antique vehicles are exempt from these safety
standards, and importing them is a simple as filling out
some government forms.

Years ago, I brought a 1941 DKW RT-125 bike from Germany
into the United States. I figured out what forms I
needed, filled them out, and sent them to the shipping
company. The bike flew (literally) through customs into
the U.S.


Although Canadian law may require you to have a title
before bringing it into the country, getting a title is
probably a different issue you will have to face - later,
when you have spent $$$ to restore it, and then want to
get license plates. So now is the time to address the
issue, not later.

Here in the US, it varies state-by-state, and I suspect
it varies province-by-province too. Some states make it
very easy to get a title for a vehicle that doesn't have
one, others make it extremely hard. You have to figure
it out for your province - using up-to-date information.

I've started writing a long article about this subject
several times, but have never finished it. Maybe now is
the time.

Good luck - and tell us what you find out.

Dave
