RE: The tariff classification of motor driven cycles and mobile LCD screens with a video/media player from the United Kingdom.

Dear Mr. Lees:

In your letter dated August 24, 2005 you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of your client, Freedom Choice LLC, D/B/A AdBikes USA, 904 N. Anita Avenue, Gonzales, LA 70737,

The first item is an “AdBike.” This is a bicycle of two types. The first type contains a 500 watt motor that propels the driver without pedaling. The second type contains a 250 watt motor. The electrical assistance from the motor will kick in only when the driver begins to pedal and stops. At that time, the motor will only propel the bicycle no more than 15 mph.

The second item is an “AdScreen.” The AdScreen is a 17” mobile LCD. The screens have a video/media player inside. The screen weighs approximately 14 pounds. AdScreen is used to play advertising commercials and also can be used to demonstrate interactive video games and telecommunication products such as cellular telephones.

The applicable subheading for the AdBike will be 8711.90.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Motorcycles (including mopeds) and cycles fitted with an auxiliary motor, with or without side-cars; side-cars: Other. The rate of duty will be free.

The applicable subheading for the AdScreen will be 8528.21.6001, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Reception apparatus for television, whether or not incorporating radiobroadcast receivers or sound or video recording or reproducing apparatus; video monitors and video projectors: Video monitors: Color: With a flat panel screen: Incorporating video recording or reproducing apparatus: Other. The rate of duty will be 3.9 percent.

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 646-733-3008.
