    Default I need shipping help

    I found a reproduction switch for my CB500 FOUR that is a German sold bike. It has the feature that modulates the headlight when passing. Anyway, the seller cant ship to the states due to some COVID 19 protocol. I was wondering if anyone here thats not in the US could buy it and have it shipped to yourself and then just reship it to me.

    I can paypal you for the initial purchase plus whatever it costs to reship it to me, Heres a link to his ebay item.

    I would rather trust my bike to a "QUACK" that KNOWS how to fix it rather than a book worm that THINKS HE KNOWS how to fix it.

    I tried buying last August and he refunded telling me that about covid as the reason he can't ship and to check back later. I emailed this weekend and he said still not shipping to the US. Don't know what the game is but I can't order it and have it sent to Oklahoma. This I need to circumvent shipment to a US address.

    I know some businesses have decided to curtail certain activities or services for 'operational reasons'. Staff shortages in particular.

    I dont see why anyone would make restrictions. SELL whenever someone wants to give you money. Moneys money regardless of where its at.

    I don't see that switch for a Euro CB500-4 on the David Silver USA site but i would contact them.
    Could be it just needs updating.
