Looking VERY nice!

Question for ya... I have a friend here (Alabama) who custom built his bike (Harley). He's been checking on insurance and they are blowing him out of the water! He's getting quotes anywhere from $3,000. to $4,500. a year to have $30,000 worth of coverage. Is this the norm or do you know some folks that insure custom bike builders for a more reasonable premium?

mq01 said...

ladyR, 10%-15% annually based on declared value is a rip off, out here anyway... 5%-7% is more appropriate.

but it depends on the value of the custom bike and state i believe. $30K is low/average for a custom hd. at Arlens the bikes were $150K sometimes each and we'd have a special coverage/riders per bike.

i dont know who to refer you to at the moment, but if i get further insurers info i'll let ya know...

wel i as scared to ask what the bike ould cost to insure here in the UK but there are a couple of Specialized Companies ho do Custom Bikes here so i can get the Bike Insured for a Agreed Value of £8,500 Fully Comp , Legal , Protected No Claims , Leather an Helmet coverage and Breakdown Recovery (just in case) for £342 UK i also get first Claim on the bike should it get killed by a myopic twatt in a cage should they run into it , may not be much use coz if sumthin happens to this bike i'll kill the B'stard

so if ive got the currency conversion to usd right, on 12-14K, pug is paying about 500. per yr in the UK. thats about 4%. hmmm excellent pug.
