SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    Under 49 U.S.C. 30141(a)(1)(A), a motor vehicle that was not 
originally manufactured to conform to all applicable FMVSS shall be 
refused admission into the United States unless NHTSA has decided that 
the motor vehicle is substantially similar to a motor vehicle 
originally manufactured for sale in the United States, certified under 
49 U.S.C. 30115, and of the same model year as the model of the motor 
vehicle to be compared, and is capable of being readily altered to 
conform to all applicable FMVSS.
    Petitions for eligibility decisions may be submitted by either 
manufacturers or importers who have registered with NHTSA pursuant to 
49 CFR part 592. As specified in 49 CFR 593.7, NHTSA publishes notice 
in the Federal Register of each petition that it receives, and affords 
interested persons an opportunity to comment on the petition. At the 
close of the comment period, NHTSA decides, on the basis of the 
petition and any comments that it has received, whether the vehicle is 
eligible for importation. The agency then publishes this decision in 
the Federal Register.
    Masa Auto Wholesalers of Chandler, Arizona (Masa) (Registered 
Importer 94-018) has petitioned NHTSA to decide whether non-U.S. 
certified 2010 Harley Davidson FL series motorcycles are eligible for 
importation into the United States. The vehicles that Masa believes are 
substantially similar are 2010 Harley Davidson FL series motorcycles 
that were manufactured for sale in the United States and certified by 
their manufacturer as conforming to all applicable FMVSS.
    The petitioner claims that it carefully compared non-U.S. certified 
2010 Harley Davidson FL series motorcycles to their U.S. certified 
counterparts, and found the vehicles to be substantially similar with 
respect to compliance with most FMVSS.
    Masa submitted information with its petition intended to 
demonstrate that non-U.S. certified 2010 Harley Davidson FL series 
motorcycles, as originally manufactured, conform to many FMVSS in the 
same manner as their U.S. certified counterparts, or are capable of 
being readily altered to conform to those standards. Specifically, the 
petitioner claims that non-U.S. certified 2010 Harley Davidson FL 
series motorcycles are identical to their U.S. certified counterparts 
with respect to compliance with Standard Nos. 106 Brake Hoses, 111 
Rearview Mirrors, 116 Brake Fluid, 119 New Pneumatic Tires for Vehicles 
other than Passenger Cars, and 122 Motorcycle Brake Systems.
    The petitioner further contends that the vehicles are capable of 
being readily altered to meet the following standards, in the manner 
indicated below:
    Standard No. 108 Lamps, Reflective Devices and Associated 
Equipment: Installation of the following U.S.-certified components on 
vehicles not already so equipped: (a) Headlamp; (b) front and rear 
side-mounted reflex reflectors; (c) rear-mounted reflex reflector; (d) 
rear turn signal lamps; (e) stoplamp; (f) taillamp; and (g) license 
plate lamp.

    Standard No. 205 Glazing Materials: Inspection of all vehicles, and 
removal of noncompliant glazing or replacement of the glazing with 
U.S.-certified components on vehicles that are not already so equipped.
