It would cost around 250-300 to ship whole I have shipped a bike in a box for 175 altho I had to completely disassemble the bike and put it in a box you need a reinforced box labeled up on it that is long enough to fit just the frame but wide enough to fit the other parts I forget the size I used tho but I took off the forks and swingarm and plastics but left the motor in the frame and put a piece of plywood on the bottom for stabily and packed everything around it and used a lot of bubble wrap the shipping weight was 163lbs and this was last year also don't know how much it went up since then go to a UPS or FedEx place with the measurements u need and a weight of 170 and see how much to ship to get the price don't tell them its a motorcycle tho and make sure all the gas is out from the carb and tank and clean it with carb clean or brake clean and let it sit for a day or two then tape off all the openings in the carb and gas tank so there will be no smell of gas do all this to save a 100 or two or see if someone will do that to ship it to you
Hope this helps

Take it apart...35% of the bike will fit in n a "if it fits it ships box" and the rest in a big box....

Last time I shipped a cag it costed me $78.00..I used palletwrap and corrugated cardboard edges to wrap it with the forks w front wheel and tucked handlebars palletwrapped to the frame,,Then I slapped fragile labels and a shipping label on it even though it didnt have a body..The palletwrap cut down on the dimensional shipping costs

Pocket bikes are today's fastest growing products. These miniature motorcycles have created a buzz across the country as more and more people discover the excitement of pocket bike riding. For best shipping the pocket bike need to put it in a box properly.
