BIKES & KITS ARE HERE .....S40 BASE BIKES ARE CUSTOMS CLEARED, ENGINEER INSPECTED & CERTIFIED, PITS INSPECTED & WA LICENSED........... BIKES & KITS ARE HERE ......
We are very happy to announce that Ryca kits are now available in Australia (details of options and pricing are available below).
We weren't too sure what to expect when we unpacked the first shipment but we were very impressed with the high standard of workmanship and quality of materials that have gone into each component part of the kit, congratulations to Ryca on a world class product. They have thought of everything from individually packed flat washers to detailed instructional build videos and written instructions so we're are very proud to represent them here in Australia.
The team at Ryca are very keen to see their bikes on our roads and nothing seems to be too much trouble for them when dealing with our questions or providing guidance wherever needed and our aim is to offer the same quality of service and product they offer in the USA.
Thanks for the many enquiries we have received so far, we are planning on having at least 2 base S40 motorcycles licensed and ready for conversion at any one time so we can book in your build or sell you a bike for your own self build.
If you have any questions at all, please drop us a line.
Ryca Kit Prices as of the 1st January 2013 (All prices are in $US unless specifically noted as A$)
Ryca's range has entended a great deal in the last 12 months, added to the CS1 Cafe Racer is the CS2 Standard, RR1 Hartail Bobber, CS Tracker and the CS2 Scrambler. There is also a wide variety of options available from the Ryca store website (http://shop.rycamotors.com/kits.html) so have a browse, choose the spec you want within your budget and we can do the rest.Things to remember however!
The Ryca website shows cost in US$ so the conversion rate on the day of order will apply.
Additional charges are made for a modified tank if required as freight charges to and from the US for the original tank make the US option uneconomical.
For the same reason, if the model you choose needs a modified wheel, its more economical for us to make that mod at home here in Australia rather than ask Ryca to post out a complete wheel.
10% GST needs to be added to the total amount of the order
Freight from the US can get expensive so budget up to $700 for a complete kit.
4-6 weeks delivery time depending on the stock situation at Ryca at the time of order.As a rough guide however, heres an average of costs for kits purchased to date.

Base S40 Motorcycles
We will always endevour to keep 2 licensed bikes on the floor at any one time. Please email for availability.
All bikes will be low mileage, gov pit inspected here in WA and can be licensed if required (WA plates).
A deposit of A$2500 will required if you would like to reserve a motorcycle from the next shipment.
Base S40 motorcycles are expected to be sold for between A$5500 to A$6500 depending on condition, mileage etc.Import your own bike!
We bring in quality S40's from the US but its an option available to anyone. Just a few things to remember (this is our experience only, so please check the relevent government sites / authorities for yourself and make no decisions based on what you read below).
Reasonable bikes are available in the US from around $1000-$2000 each.Road vehicles can only be reasonably easily imported if:
- They are manufactured before 1989
- Are completely unmodified (we can't import finished Rycas for both of the reasons above!)
- A import authority is granted before the bike is imported. (You have to buy the bike before you apply with no guarantee of sucess)
To get an import authority you will need to have:
- A reciept of purchase (so you will have to buy the bike before you apply)
- Up to date photographs of the vehicle
- All relevent details of the bike i.e. rego papers
GST is applicable on the price of the vehicle and all freight charges incurred to get the vehicle to an australian port
(I.e. if you pay $600 to get the bike from NJ to a Californian port, that cost is icluded with the sea freight charges for GST purposes)
When the vehicle arrives at the port, AQUIS will inspect the vehicle and either let it through or require a steam clean (we were stung $750 by a dodgy AQUIS approved cleaner for one motorcycle clean so be careful!!!!) Average cost should be about $250 for a bike but get a firm quote first.Now you can take possession of your vehicle and if it was purchased sight unseen its the moment of truth as to its real condition!!
The vehicle now needs to be inspected by an authorised engineer who will conduct sound tests and a conformity inspection of brake lines, lights, etc etc.
When you have that certificate, its off to the government licensing centre who will then conduct a licensing inspection. If it passes that the vehicle can then be registered.
Its a big excercise, but the hardest part is parting with money for a bike we've never seen, relying on the honesty of the seller before we can even apply for an import permit!!Thats why an imported bike on the road here in Australia can be 3 times the price it would cost in the US.
NB: There is a RAWS scheme that allows registered workshops to bring in near new bikes but this is out our scope at this time.
