GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR A GREAT ADVENTURE IN CHILE OR ARGENTIN

-----------------------------------
Yamaha Super Tenere XTZ 750 for sale in or around Santiago-Iquique, Chile, or Northern Argentina South America NOW.

see great photos of bike,starting with:
www.horizonsunlimited.com/tstories/peck/000328.php

Enduro style with long range tank and high suspension. Ideal for two people and has been expertly set up for long distance travel specifically for South America.
The motorcycle is mechanically like new and our lives depend on it being in good running order, therefore, it will be in very good running order for the next owner.

Substantial modifications include: Heavy duty bash plate connecting a heavy duty tool kit case with extensive tool kit, long range fuel tanks (40 litres), substantially reinforced sub frame incorporating heavy duty saddle bag frame, heavy duty front and rear suspension, carburetors overhauled, dual horns, bark busters with guards, 12v outlet, expanded side stand base, raised front mud guard, foam air filters, large fuel filter, front positioned foot rest.
The bike has been very well balanced and it is a pleasure to ride in all conditions and at all speeds.

Instead of carrying lots of spares and doing repairs along the way, I replaced everything that could go wrong and it was done by a Yamaha approved mechanic who is a perfectionist like us!!!

Accessories include: spare universal stand, battery charger, extensive first aid kit, altimeter, thermometer, clock, warm weather gloves x2, cold weather gloves x2, spare helmet visors, compass, extensive tyre repair system, sheep skin seat cover, MSR water filter, 6litre MSR water bags, spare front and rear tubes (Michelin heavy duty), high altitude jets, 1x Canon digital camera.

We have found a place in Chile, where we can sell the bike legally to foreigners or residence free of custom duties. Therefore, you will have no shipping costs, modification costs and no need for a carnet. It is currently registered in Qld, Australia.

The XTZ750 Super Tenere was 6 times winner of the Paris Dakar Race and has the dependability of Japanese Technology. Spare parts are available in South America.

We are having a great time on her, soon its your turn!! (We finish our 14 month trip in March 2003 in Chile)

Price: ONLY US$3,100 without accessories and includes all transfer costs.
All accessories will be sold- make us an offer we cannot refuse- all top quality and new Feb 2002.
2x all weather jackets, 2x systems helmets, 3X Saddle bags, spare parts, 1x kidney belt, 1x shin guard set, 1x guide book, various maps, 1x double mosquito net, 2x water proof overpants. Where there are 2x one size is small, the other large. All you need to bring is your personal clothes!!

Cheers, Belinda and Patrick Peck

PS We are currently in Mendoza, Argentina, heading north towards Salta, then Iquique, then back down to Santiago, Chile. We will sell the bike anywhere from here on.

Hi John,
We can send you a copy of the Australian registration and we may have the papers of our shipment into Texas, that verifies all numbers. We can also photograph the VIN number on the bike and email that to you.
We have just had her fully serviced and she is ready to go for at least another 20,000km.
Hope this helps.
Let us know ASAP.
Regards, Pat

Another alternative is:
We can supply you with ownership papers and Australian registration in your name that will get you across all borders back to Florida.

You can then show the Authorities the bike physically and register it there.

We have left Salta, crossing the Andes tomorrow and will be in Iquique by the end of the week. Dont know how much internet access on the way, but will check when we can.
Cheers, Pat and Belinda

Today we got a really low offer from the bike shop. If we dont get a better offer in the next few days, we might just take it. This could be your last chance to buy a great bike at a fantastic price with all the modifications and accessories you could possibly want. Email us or call us in Iquique.
