Selling a bike in Paraguay?

I notice from some old 2005 threads that Paraguay did not do any paperwork for foreign registered bikes crossing into the country.

Presumably, a bike can then be stored indefinately in the country.

This is what I have been looking for. Can anyone confirm that it is still the case currently?

If so, I am in the market for a bike in Paraguay. Anyone needing to sell a bike in SA, please contact me.

Paraguay Aduana

I've been to Paraguay twice in the last 12 months. Both times I got customs papers for my bike.

We are planning on buying a bike in Ecuador and selling it in Paraguay. As I understand this is possible, but the buyer wil have to pay 30% import tax.

It will be a cheap chinese bike.

-Is it still possible to sell foreign motors in Paraguay?
-How is the value of the motorcycle (and tax) determined? Do they look at your bill? Or do they do an estimation?
-Is it possible to sell the bike in the grey circuit? This to divide the tax.
