    Anybody every bought a bike with no title? Is it worth the hassle if you get a really good deal on the bike? Has anyone had to get a bonded title? How did the process go and how long did it take to complete?

    Thanks,

    I have no idea. I found a bike for sale and the owner says they bought it to make it a track bike so he wasn't concerned with the title. Just says that it was lost.

    depends on the damage and condition of the bike, if the bike has been fixed and all that there is to it, and you get a killer deal, id do it in a second, without a thought

    bonded titles can suck, it takes a lot of work to get your title. usually, the DMV will try and contact the last title holder to see if they did sell the bike. If the bike is stolen, guess what happens. A salvage bike can be a nightmare, I have one, and fortunately, it runs great. Some just have too much damage to deal with though.

    I've been noticing that a lot of owners who drop there bikes just let the ins company total it out and get money. So this leads to salvaged titles when sometimes there is just cosmetic damage.

    Unless your buying it as a track bike, I would stay away.

    ya I think it was a scam, I haven't heard anything since yesterday from that person. No worries. I think I'm gonna buy one that actually has a title. So all is good.
