Can anyone fill me in on the details (or at least the basics) of obtaining a title for a motorcycle without one? Im talking like if I were to buy a bike with a "lost" title or whatever, assuming the thing is not stolen, what is the process.

In Colorado, it was relatively easy as you had to have it appraised, do a title search, try and contact the titled owner to obtain the title and if that didnt work, bond out for 2x the value of the appraisal (only payed 3% of bond) and then the DMV would issue a new title.

Is it the same here?

Thanks

Not sure what research will need to be done to verify who the previous owner the title was issued to was, but you will most likely need to start from scratch (at least I did) by having the bike inspected by a motorcycle shop (Racer's Edge happened to have done mine) to validate it's safety and road worthiness. Then it has to be inspected by the DMV to ensure it meets all requirements to be used on our roadways.

My situation was slightly different in that my bike didn't have a title because it was issued a Certificate of Destruction (not the same as a Salvage Title) which killed the original VIN #, but the frame was able to be used as a "part" which allowed it to be rebuilt. Once I got all the required inspections done, I was issued a new VIN # and the bike was registered as normal.

yeah i have done the salvage thing. In colorado if the appraised value was under $200 it was automatically issued a salvage, above that was a standard title. not that any of that has anything to do with it other than resale.

I only ask because I am looking to build a cafe project and there are TONS of cheap non-titled bikes. Hmmm. I will look into it further. I may have to go to the DMV in a few days so I will ask them although I dont think they will know the technical details about it.

if you're BUILDING the bike, then I'd assume the process to pretty much go as I explained above, but it might be slightly different if you use a frame that already has a VIN number on it. Kinda like American Chopper. They use a newly built frame with no VIN number, then build the bike. When the new owner goes to register it, it HAS to be issued a VIN number, so the process should be pretty much as I described. Good luck and keep us posted on what you find it. It may be helpful info to more people than you know.
