Selling a bike in Paraguay

I am thinking about selling my Super Tenere. It has got Australian plates and I have heard that there shouldn't be any problem selling it in Paraguay. Do anyone have any knowledge about this? would I get a good price for it or would I be ripped off?
I will be very grateful for any comments.

RFI Selling in Ascuncion?

I also want to sell a bike in Paraguay. Bad news about the change in the law though. I would appreciate any info on selling there. I am panning to travel there from Rio later this week to sell a bike. Will let you know how I get on.

I can not figure out why so frequently old threads about selling your bike in Paraguay and Darien Gap sailing go missing. There needs to be stickies made for each of these common topics.

I sold my bike in Paraguay in early 2008. Here is the information for how to sell your bike there. The laws in Paraguay are still the same as when I sold my bike in 2008.

(((Edit: Hey guys, I wanted to update my opinion about selling your bike in Paraguay. There is a shop called Klein Motos (Klein Motos - Official Website ) in Asuncion that specializes in importing salvage bikes from the U.S. and selling them in Paraguay. This is good because they know how to do all of the paperwork to legalize your bike which costs them around $2000 in fees. This shop will make you a decent (no strings attached) offer on your bike depending on what type of bike you have. For my 2001 F650, 40k miles they offered me $3000. They will not give you any money for aftermarket accessories or servicing/maitenance.
