S. America - where to buy / transfer and where to sell

After spending Carnival in Rio I'd like to get a bike and travel S. America. After reading the forums I have a few questions:

I know I can buy in Argentina with help from a local (thanks Xfiltrate).
I know I can buy a bike in Chile. (thanks Wyattroscoe)
I know I can forget Brazil.

Buying Questions:
-Can I buy a local bike in Paraguay / Uruguay.
-Or can I successfully transfer the title of a foreigner's bike into my name in Paraguay / Uruguay and ride from country to country?

Selling Questions:
-Is there any way that I can I sell a bike in Peru / Ecuador / Colombia?

I'm hoping to buy a bike near Brazil and go clockwise through S. America (Brazil to Argentina to Chile and North) and possible sell it in Peru / Ecuador / Colombia....

If it helps, I am Canadian and could probably legally transfer the title of a Canadian bike 'back home' from someone else's name to mine (if it was within the same province) if that helps in any way.


Thanks.

2008 KLR for sale

Hey Bro,

I am heading to Rio & will be there after Carnival & am selling my bike which might interest you/ A friend just did the paperwork so do have an idea from him. The bike is registered in the US & I am from the UK. I would send the tittle back to the US to my brother who would get it changed inot a buyers name for me. You need an address in the US but not an issue as you could use ours in Phoenix if you needed to.

If interested mail me on mojoriding@googlemail.com.

Cheers Mo
