US Trade Tarrifs

#1 PostAuthor: ZedHead » Wed Apr 04, 2018 12:18 pm

As I feared, President Trump's proposed import tarrifs from China includes 25% on motorcycle parts !!!

Not good news for the yanks or anyone buying Chinese repro parts from the states if it is allowed to go ahead :mad

But depending on how the tariffs work it could be an opportunity....

China may try and dump the parts here it can't export to the States....

Possibly Neil, China and Taiwan manufacture a lot of repro parts, including Doremi 4 - 4 pipes. Tarrifs are usually based on country of origin meaning even if parts are shipped from outside China they will still attract the tarrif on landing in US.

It might still be defeated which seems fare.
