Does anybody know the requirements to sell a bike to a non-SA citizen?  I have someone interested in Mr.Badger, who wants to ride it up to Ethiopia.  I think he is Russian.

What does he need to do to be able to buy the bike?

Thanks Hugh

And then it seems, to take the bike out of the country they also need to 'export' it, with police clearance and a permit, as per: https://www.carzar.co.za/blog/leaving-south-africa-export-your-car-or-sell-it-export-laws

Registering with the traffic system requires the person in person, and an original FICA document (which is impossible to do if you are flying in, buying a bike and riding up through Africa) (unless you are indeed a criminal, in which case it is easy).

Does he intend returning to RSA Charles?

No - he wants to buy the bike here, then ride up to Ethiopia, then presumably sell it there, or ship it home to Ukraine or wherever.
