my 2-cents of comment, FWIW, as the bike is not technically registered in your name.

I have my doubts that Thai Immigration will let you in, especially if your bill of sale was not notarized and just written between you and the seller. YMMV

You and the seller may need to go to the Ministry of Public Works and Transportation, in PP, and get the title transferred to your name!

Unless Cambodia has some agreement with Thailand, I can't see the difference of bringing a bike into Thailand from any other country, ie: Singapore, Malaysia, Australia. I got a 30 day customs "visa" regardless of my own visa status. Basically I had to get the bike over to a border crossing to the Thai customs every month. I even had a Carnet, which made no diffence.
I hope I am wrong in your case, it is always worth a try.
Cheers
