RE: The tariff classification of a bicycle crankshaft unit from Germany

Dear Mr. Simpson:

In your letter dated September 13, 1996 you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of SKF USA, Inc. of King of Prussia, Pennsylvania (I.R.S. #23-1043740-00).

The item involved (drawing shown below) is the Bicycle Crankshaft Unit (BCU). Its components are of metal and consist of a Tubearing, spindle, taper ring and adapters.

You state that the item is manufactured by SKF GMBH in Germany and that it will be imported into the United States through the Port of Allentown, Pennsylvania.

The applicable subheading for the Bicycle Crankshaft Unit (BCU) will be 8714.93.3500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Parts and accessories of [bicycles]: Hubs . . . : Hubs: Other: Other. The rate of duty will be 10% ad valorem. It is our opinion that the Bicycle Crankshaft Unit (BCU) would not be subject to antidumping duties under the current Department of Commerce antifriction bearing dumping investigation, as published in the Federal Register on May 15, 1989. The scope of this investigation covers precision bearings and would not apply to unground bearings. Should you desire a scope determination on the applicability of this ADA case to your merchandise, please write directly to the Department of Commerce, Office of Compliance, Washington, D.C.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Robert DeSoucey at 212-466-5667.
