I accidentally bought this today: https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1965-honda-cl72/ 

Anyone has any advice for shipping my purchase down to central Florida?

My wife does not know yet. angel

Can't help on the shipping, but I recommend flowers.

Buy her jewelry of equal value. Give her the jewelry before your thing shows up.

At least you didn't buy a stock car roller <insert cringe-y emoji>

Having meet your wife I think you need to buy her the International she wants.

Over in this thread, I recommended a Florida based shipper

Tell her the "I'm going out for a pack of cigarettes" trick.   

Hop a plane to FLA today and start riding back tomorrow.  Call her on the way back with a "hey, something came up" excuse.  

What's the worst that can happen?

Are the tags user generated or is Skynet already calling your marriage?

I got you beat, I drunk ordered a set of Konig wheels, via phone that are currently backordered. It'll be 4-8 weeks

Lol, thanks for all the replies!

We did have a "discussion" last night, but things are ok today.

I'm looking into shipping. It's really not economically feasible to go up and get it. Still, until I get a few quotes I'm not ruling that option out.

Fortunately both the shipper and receiver are in no hurry, which should help a lot with costs.

I'll keep you updated, along with a build thread once in my hands. Thanks, GRM!

Nothing to add other than that is a cool bike.

If your wife is cool, this is best answer

In reply to Shadeux :
