wanted moto santigo chile

hello,
i arrive in santiago chile on 01 february from paris, ride in chile bolivia peru and fly back to paris from lima on 01 march. i d be happy to meet local people and travellers there.

i want to BUY a small bike in santiago on arrival, honda cg125 style or even honda xr250 style, according to my budget : 500 euros maybe more, according to the local market. To AVOID spending too much time finding a bike on arrival : if you have any good plans, contacts, if you can help me in santiago, etc ... to get a bike like this over there (i posted before on this subject so i already know a bit and thanx to the people and local hubb communities who alreday replied me).

i m now preparing my trip a bit and focus for the moment on the BORDER CROSSINGS.

please could you confirm what i alreday searched and found, tell me if wrong, give ideas, tips :

* chile - bolivia - : arica to la paz, calama to ollague with connections to oruno and la paz, iquique to oruro via colchane/pisiga, san pedro de atacama to uyuni;
* bolivia-peru : puno and cuzco via copacabano, yunguyo and desaguadero.

thanx
happy trails

Hi, try in www.chileautos.cl, is a good site in which you can see photos and prices of bikes offered here in Chile.

For 500 Eu I can only think in a tiny motorcycle like those used in pizza delivery. Is a small budget. For 1000EU you could find and old 1990 XR-250.
Also Yamaha DT-175 are common here , reliables (it´s Yamaha) and cheap.

Pd: 1 EU = 620 Chilean Pesos


Regards
