any suggestions as to how i might go about doing this? the CZ-i meets US DOT and EPA requirements, so it's not a big deal, but i would like to know of reliable companies in thailand to deal with that i can purchase from
As far as I am concerend you need a lot of different papers and documents. If you have never exported a bike before, I would ask a dealer or soem folks in the US about the risks and requirements. You know there's customs and costs that have to be taken into consideration.

Check with a customs broker or the customs office in the USA to get the requirements of receiving a motorcycle from Thailand. There are many customs agents in the Yellow pages of the phone book you may have to interview several to find a good one. They have a fee but of you check into the USCS website you may find the answers there and will not need an agent. Ask the import duty fees normally about 20% depends on the US customs agent.
Ship by Sea with all paperwork -shipper will box the bike remove fuels,oils etc.
