IF YOU HAVE LOST YOUR MOTORCYCLE TITLE BEFORE YOU TRANSFERRED IT TO YOUR NAME–CALL US!
If you need info on replacing a lost motorcycle title, you are in the right place. Doing your homework before you start shopping for a used motorcycle can be very beneficial. If the seller does not have a title to the motorcycle make sure you get all the information you can before you buy the bike. You will also want to make sure you get a receipt, bill of sale or notarized bill of sale to prove your purchase. A legal bill of sale has both the seller’s and the buyer’s information and is signed by both parties.
Come prepared, and bring a friend who can help keep you from getting too excited about the shiny used bike facing you. Bring a checklist of questions you intend to ask, and things you intend to check out on the bike when you buy.
Buying from a private party, you’ll probably pay less for your used bike. You’ll need to inspect the motorcycle yourself, or arrange to bring the motorcycle to your mechanic for an examination before completing the purchase (highly recommended). Be sure to ask the seller if they’ve service records and receipts for parts and accessories that are included with the bike

Negotiating a price for a mild restoration project or a total basket case is tricky, especially without a title. Asking prices on eBay are not the same as marketplace value — sale costs are often much lower than asking prices. Don’t hesitate to negotiate. If something does not feel right, make sure you have the VIN run by law enforcement to make sure it is not stolen. Also be aware that newer motorcycle may still have liens on them.
