Re: The Craigslist Thread

I called about the bike last night and he does not have a title. I just can,t bring myself to buy one without a title.

Re: The Craigslist Thread

Looking closely at those pics tells me I wouldn't want that bike even with a title. Rode dumb and put up dumber.

I thought the same thing.

But after some research, the process isn't too bad.
A bonded title is much the same as title insurance on your mortgage.

I bought a DRZ w/o a title. But I ran the VIN on a Texas DMV approved title search and got the complete story on it. The story I was told checked out with the history.

It'll take about a day of effort and an extra $100 to get a bonded title.

At any rate, the reduced purchase price can certainly offset the extra nuisance and expense

Re: The Craigslist Thread

Be wary of the “approved” dmv title searches - I️ got a frame for free off cl and never thought anything about I️t until I️ started planning to build a bike. Ran several free searches and one of the insurance approved paid searches that turned up nothing- then decided to get a Leo friend to run I️t and I️t came back reported stolen. I’ve basically lost faith in any other method of checking them after that. If someone knows of a reliable method - please share

Re: The Craigslist Thread

So what if you purchased and applied for bonded title and the real owner popped up on the screen?
