Buying a bike in South America

So I looked in the forums avd and here to see what's the big deal to buy a bike ride it and sell it at the end of the trip.

As I'm see buyin a bike in argentina from a shop or a local don't let you going out of the country before one year, so forget about going to chile or anywhere else, so I scrapped the idea.

Buying in other country in S.A seem to be the same kind of hassle.

So it seem the best way is buy a bike from a tourist like me in any country in S.A, but....

1- What will be the paper work I have to do to buy something in S.A ??? if the bike is coming out of the country, did I have to export it, to the country, pay the tax, the customs etc.... who that going to make a hell of a bill

2- If I trnafer the title from another person and keep the nationality of the bike as is, I surely need to sold the bike to someone who's coming from the same country ??? or the same country where the bike is registered ???

3- If somebody going through the process, how long did the thing take for the country he do the paper work ???

4- the title has to be straight to pass the border between the country you buy the bike and the country you try to visit after.

DID ANYBODY DO THAT KIND OF TRANSACTION AS A BUYER AND AS A SELLER AFTER ????


Thanks everybody, as i tell I do a lot of reading and nothing is really clear about this issue.

Thanks.

I am trying to get information, as I could import my bike to Italy aand then after the trip I could sell it to an other tourist, but it seems that the matter is possible but it involves a lot of grey area...
two or three things are clear to me :
1- most probably you should go to Argentina or other country in S.A. to talk to some people there to undestand clearly the process
2- it will be easier if the tourists the buyer and the seller are from the same nationality
3- it will involve a lot of trust between the two parties for money transfer, transfer of paper etc...
4- in my opinion (but I am not sure...) both the seller and the buyer should be there as the seller has to go out of aRgentina (for example) with his bike with the temporary import permit and then he has to hand over the bike to the buyer within the boundaries before enteing the new country (i.e. Uruguay), is it clear?

I have tried asking this question in the appropriate thread a couple of times but nobody seems willing to discuss the "grey area" at all. Certainly not in any detail which would give me any confidence to travel to B.A to attempt it.
Some straight up honest info would be great from those who have gone through the process with success or otherwise.
