Shipping my motorcycle to NZ.....?!

New Zealand : British Expat Discussion Forum - britishexpats.com
Hello all, New to this forum and thought I would be great to jump on since my wife and I are moving to NZ in a few months. She is a kiwi and Im a brit so I can get my residency through her thankfully.

Sorry for some noob questions, if someone could give me some advice, I'd greatly appreciate it..

I have a classic motorcycle (1989 BMW R80) which is in complete bits as Im halfway through restoring it.

We already have a 20' shipping container which we will put all our stuff into so it's not a worry to also put in the motorcycle parts as well. But how should I import it? As motorcycle parts? Or as a complete bike which is in bits? And will I be able to register it ok once I finish restoring it in another year or 2?

As an additional point, my father-in-law (who resides north of Auckland) wants me to bring over a spare gearbox for his classic Land Rover series 3. Apparently they are really difficult to find in NZ. Will I be stung for GST and import duty for bringing over a random gearbox in the container?

Many thanks for any advice!
