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.
