Chilean registered 180cc Pulsar Bajaj for Sale in the US, 600 USD, March 2013.
I bought the bike in February 2012 in Valparaiso, Chile. All papers are in my name and I'm the registered Chilean owner. I am in Central America at the moment and I will be heading up north rather quickly and I want to be able to take a flight out of the States and have the bike sold by the end of february/ early march. If you contact me in the next couple of weeks and tell me a where and when I will drive the bike all the way to where you live wherever that is within the US. If it's really that far off and I can't make it there we could meet somewhere inbetween. I haven't booked a flight yet so I can leave from pretty much anywhere in North America.
Bike has been in HU Members hands since it had been purchased in late 2011 in Santiago de Chile.
I still keep the papers that allow the bike to enter back into Chile. Some of the Chilean papers are outdated but these are only required if you want to drive in Chile and/or sell the bike in Chile. To update these papers you need to go to pretty much any Registro Civil in any major town in Chile. I don't know how much it is to update all of the papers though.
When I left Valparaiso the Bike had less than 17,000km on the clock, at the moment it has just over 46,000km and I reckon it will be at like ~55,000km more or less depending on where I will need to meet you.
I had a couple of crashes with the bike and I wouldn't have believed that I could ever get to some of the places I've been to on a bike like this. They include the worst Bolivian roads all the way to Pto. Suarez on the border to Brazil. Mud roads in Bolivia north of Trinidad, as well as the Andes mountains on over 5400 mts near the crossing between Chile and Bolivia (San Pedro de Atacama in Chile going up to the Lagoons and the Uyuni Salt flat in Bolivia.)
Both crashbars show signs of the hard use and the front has a couple of scratches. None of the signs affect the bikes performance. One of the footrests rubber ... things also broke off... ... let's just say it can be fixed with a screw but I really didn't care much what it looked like and I put money into the bike only into things that needed fixing.
It's not a new bike and I'm stating all thats wrong with it so there's no complaints later. From a technical perspective the bike works perfectly and has so since I left Valparaiso on it. I haven't had a single problem which is more than I can say for my previous bike (a XT 550 Yamaha) and/ or some of the bikes we've seen these past couple of months. KTM's with blown out fork seals and no dealer in the next 1000km and so on.
It comes with a full toolkit to fix pretty much anything on the bike and possibly a helmet if you'd need it.
I have travelled on it alone for a long time and for about 4months two up and we had no trouble putting all the stuff on the back/ in the saddlebags.
One last thing is the papers. The only way that Im aware of is going to a Notaria together, with the bike papers and passports and writing an Power of Attorney that gives you full power to do what you want with the bike, including selling it.
With that power of attorney you could sell it to anyone with a Chilean RUT (obtainable by foreigners in Chile within a couple of days) or Chilean Citizen.
Whatever that costs (was about 50 USD in Chile) will be paid by whoever buys the bike as well as any additional cost that comes with signing the bike over.
Other than that I will sell the bike for no more than 600 USD.
