Help importing overseas bike

I would really like to get a small bike that would be more fun on back roads like a TZ250, 400 sportbike or the new Yamaha R125. Problem is here in the states you aren't allowed to have fun so it is a pain to find anything like this and if you do people want five times what it is worth.
I am wondering if here is anyone on the forum that could help me if I find a bike in the UK by shipping it to me possibly taking it apart and shipping it boxed?

I've always wanted to do the same thing with a Cagiva Mito. I have read threads about this over on the Aprilia forum. The real trick is getting it registered once it is in the US (and put back together). Usually, you have to use what is known as the Vermont loophole. Also, I think it is pretty easy to register any vehicle in Arizona if you live there.
