Aussie selling bike in Europe - ADVICE NEEDED
Hi Everyone (or anyone),
I hope i have posted this in the correct place.
I'm an Australian, that some time ago purchased a Suziki GS500 in France. After much difficulty, i got it registered under two names, mine and a friends (for the purpose of using their residential address). I have since been riding the bike around Europe and will be doing so for the next few months.
My question is simply: How can i sell the bike? I will be ending up in Spain, so would love to sell it there before returning to Oz. Can i sell a french registered bike in Spain? Does the paperwork have to be filed in France? (if so, can it be done by post?) Does anyone know if both parties it is registered under need to sight/sign the paperwork? Are there spare parts dealers or used bike dealers in Spain that are interested in bikes (thinking it may be quicker than private sale)?
Its a 1996 model with over 88k kms (and more to come) so don't expect much € from it. But, it'd be good to have some money towards the LARGE airplane ticket to get home, and i'd like to see the old girl put to good use.
Basically, any advice from locals or especially travelleres that have previously bought and sold in Europe would be appreciated. i have tried looking for info on past threads, but can only find out about buying
I will be coming to the UK HU meet, so if anyone going there has any good ideas, we can chat over a
