I`ve seen the African Queens Guards on some Transalp Pics and noticed they seem to be well made and was wondering how long the delivery time usually is and more to the point is there usually some sort of import duty that has to be paid :disgust:. Got caught out with that last year on something sent from the USA.
Cheers

I was under the impression if it was within the EU it was duty free, But I've been wrong before, I have had stuff from france,germany,guernsey and austria and never had to pay any duty's.

hi fairweather,

bought my crashbars off them very helpfull, just email them in english and they will get back to you, postage can be expensive depending on how heaavy etc.

best solution is ge tsomeone in Germany to buy then ship direct to you as "a gift of no comercial value" well it works for me from those far east lot:sunny:.

I have just received my AQ crash bars (tank) for my 650. I ordered March 31, they arrived May 5th.

The finish is nice and the robustness seems great, but why in the heck do they only supply spanish(?) instructions on a single sided sheet of paper as the sole guide to installation?? Well only a limited set of screws so I should manage, but a microfiche image would have been more useful...

Also a nut came with wrong type of thread (didn't match the screw). :rolleyes:

No tax is payable for goods shipped within the EU all you have to pay is the local country tax which is often included in the price quoted. An example of this is Italy where you have to pay (I think) 21% duty.

VAT is 19% in germany according to my receipt.

Finished installing the bars today. Certainly looks fine and seems to protect the right area that I want (tank). The fit was good, didn't have to work them much to get in place. :thumbup:

How she looks now:
