I'm starting to see some cheap Thai parts being sold now stateside, but at prices that reflect a ton of profit. For example, one can get Spyker or X-Speed rearsets for 2500-2900 baht or about $79-$91. I'm personally waiting for TygaPauls' version, but I can see the allure of the Thai parts because so much is available and the cost is very low.

However what we're missing is someone to import these items and sell the decent quality parts at a reasonable profit. Right now I'm just seeing cheap parts being sold at top dollar. Is there anyone out there that can navigate the importing waters and not rip us all off?

I live in Pattaya Thailand on my time off work. I work 4 weeks on an oil rig then get 4 weeks holiday.

I have just bought my MSX and can't believe how big the Grom/MSX tuning scene is here in Thailand.

I have a good job and am not really interested in having a second job but if i can help anybody with parts then i will.

Not sure the best way forward with this but if anyone has a part/item they want PM me the details and i will get a price for them. I will only ship on a recorded delivery with insurance basis and i expect the funds into my paypal account before i ship.

Like i said i don't particularly want a second job but i will help out anyway i can.

Let me know what you Guys think.

I get back to Pattaya at the end of the month.

Yes I see that too, and yes I am working on it.

My parents are Thai, and I was born in California, some of my American friends who have lived in Thailand for many years have told me that their friend in Thailand has a shop, and has all of the parts for our bikes. Says to let him know what parts I want or my friends want. So I'll be working on getting parts in big quantities over here depending on interest.

I would like to be part of any mass orders you initiate.

I've got 8 thai projector headlights coming in and 4 yss shocks. That will be my first order and if it goes well, I will place a bigger order. I haven't worked out shipping costs once they get stateside just yet but if anyone is interested then shoot me a pm. I will be opening a thread when my order arrives, but it could be a month or so.

Good stuff. Thanks for the backup support for helping this idea, it would benefit everyone for this to happen no matter who brings the stuff in to put on the market. In the quote "For the people, By the people" would be a great way to look at this.

What I've seen that I would like to see readily available to us, and of course please add on to what parts are of interest to you as well. Having a list would make it easier in case someone else has more of a direct contact and are able to do this.

-Rear sets
-Levers
-Pegs
-Bodywork
-Sensor guards
-Brake line holders
-Headlights
-Rims
-Tires?
-Handle Bars
-Mirrors
-Triple Trees
-Suspension
-Seats
-Controls
-Plug & Play alarm systems (Have seen some of these install videos on YouTube)

-Engine mods- (Will need it's own category)
-Intake
-Exhaust
-Injectors
-Piggyback systems

The list is pretty damn hefty actually..

How much are you going to be selling the Headlights for?
I'll take one and I live in Indiana so shipping won't cost much.

I'm still not quite sure. By saying it would be about $20 to ship I would have to say it's gonna be around $80. Give or take.

Guys I'm here in Thailand right now. I have already sent a big box of random parts home but I don't get home till next weekend. But I have contacts and have been to these shops already. Met owner of one main shop that supplies all local shops here. The more you order the cheaper the rate is on shipment. So you get better discount on shipping more. That's what I have seen for dhl service at least.
