Default Importing a HD to Italy from USA

I have a HD panhead 1951, which I would like to import to Europe.
I have sorted out the shipping, but I'm not sure how to proceed with the customs regulations in EU.

If anyone knows anything on this matter it would help me out a lot.

I don't think they like their roads oiled over there, so things might get sticky.

Find an American Customs Broker. Use their services to get the bike in. It will have to meet DOT compliance before you can put license plates on it. Find a Odometer if your bike is running a KM gauge. Turn signals weren't required back then on bikes so you should be fine there. As the Customs broker if there's anything you should know that could glitch your plan.

No, no, Ace. He's shipping the other direction.
