A guy brought a Ducati 996 to me yesterday for some servicing, it is running like a dog.Thais and people who dont know what to do to Ducatis have been messing with it.

However the really sad thing is that he has paid 550,000 baht for this bike 2 years ago with no import papers or book from a well known Pattaya Dealer, without the import papers/customs invoices it is impossible to register a bike and it could be impounded by the police or customs anytime. He has asked me to help him get a book and registration but that is impossible without the import documents and customs duty papers.
The dealer is giving him the run around (farang ) and will not refund the money, he has offered to put the bike in his shop and sell it with commission,but of course it still wont be legal.

Do not buy a bike without custom invoices, there will usually be 3 as the machine is imported in pieces.

I cant help this guy he is a decent chap and very angry.

Hi, Jerry,

Just tell me, in your introduction profile I do not see anything about servicing and garage activity, are you servicing ? Where are you located ? What bikes are you specialised in ? DUCATI ?

Thanks by advance for your answer.

Jerry. You are too nice a guy. People with bad intentions might try & make problems for you. How does a motorcycle just "show up" here with no paperwork? The seller sounds like a crook.
