ILLEGAL countries to sell a bike from another country

You cannot LEGALLY sell a vehicle in Colombia and nor can it be imported unless it is brand new or over 25 years old.

Take note;

Even if this means getting back only a few hundred USD despite it being worth a few thousand.

Any suggestions welcome.

To stay within the law you can drive the motorcycle to Bogota Airport and 'voluntary abandon' it at the airport - this costs nothing's nor will you receive any compensation. You'll get a record of this and be able to enter Colombia without any issues in the future.

Or do we do a notarised letter saying I am the new owner? Can I cross the borders with this?

Any problems crossing borders if the Chilean documents (tax, technical check) are out-of-date?

Thanks for the help guys..

Only way you can do this is buy the bike in Chile - buyer and seller both go directly (no need for notoria) to the Registro de Civil and transfer the bike. They will the issue a new document proving you are the new owner. Do this or don't buy it unless you want hassle at the boarder.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
