Title Situation.... Only helpful opinons please

Ok, I bought my 2004 suzuki gsxr back in june. Guy was selling the bike for 3800 I gave him 3k up front and he say he would keep the title until the 800 balance was paid off... Bout two weeks later I pay the guy the 800 I owe and he says "man look i was short on funds so i got a title loan on the title and now I owe them money to get the title back so give me until i get paid again and i will pay it in full and get the title for you" Ok, like 2 1/2 months later i still dont have the title. I been calling but everytime i get his wife and she say she will have him call me. I recently had a wreck and the person was at fault, so i was supposed to get my settlement this week. But they (the insurance company) sent me a packet asking for the title and to sign rights over of the bike to them and all that...


So now my question is, if i dont send them the title and tell them its lost would i get my check?? What can I do in this situation to get me money to get me another bike, or to get the title???? I know i shouldnt have trusted this guy and its my own fault but is there anything I can do??? I need honest opions and no bs replies... Somebody please help me

Did you ever actually see the title in his name? Sounds like you need to pin him down and get it. Insurance company won't pay off on a total until you have the title in your name; which means you need to get the title from him, transfer it, then send to the insurance co.

Do you know where he lives or works? I would say pay him a visit and get him face to face. What about getti the authorities involved? File a police report, maybe? I'm just throwing stuff out there... Did you get a receipt or a bill of sale for it? With the bill of sale you can still get the title transferred, I think. Ask him where he has he title loan through and see if you can get that company to work with you... situation man, I'm sorry.

Ins. is gonna try to give the OWNER the money. I would be very concerned at this point. You need a mechanics lein on the bike. It doesnt look good for you.

just left dept of transportation and they telling me i can get the title by getting it bonded or something but this whole process takes another 4 weeks to be done and a load of more money.....

I try to trust people and treat them with repsect and i always get the short end of the stick... Its like its no more good people out here..... Man this is so frustrating

Your not gonna get a bonded title when the place he got the loan from is the current title holder or lien holder.

Small claims court is your only option. Or a mechanics lean. That takes priority over all others. Duplicate title you could do but you still have to have that guy involved.

ride my neighbors harley cuz he doesnt ride it







what type of paperwork do you have? if you took his "word" and no paperwork you are screwed. if you have the proper documentation sue his azz cuz the cops are going to tell you its a civil matter unless you assault him or vice versa.....now about the suing i dont know if thats small claims court but its possibly the same length of time as the bonding process but dont do anything rash. your going to get alot of peeps on here saying fug him up or something stupid to that effect, do things the right way and take it as a lesson learned. two things that will ALWAYS ruin a friendship, WOMEN and MONEY!!!!!!!!

My bike was recently in a little wreck nothin major just cosmetic damage. $3,000 dollars worth. I didnt have the title in my name yet. Its still in my uncle's name. Thing is when the insurance company ran the vin number it came back in my uncle's name. so They sent me the check in his name. I had to get him to cash it at his bank and then paid the shop to fix my bike. My point is when they ran the vin it would have came back in his name. You might want to check on it to make sure the title is even in his name. You also might want to try and get your money back.

Like Dantelee said I would sue his and try and get your dough back. Im sure you know by now though dont buy a bike unless you can get the title right then and there in hand. There are so many scamers out there dude. It would be small claims court though. I know babygirlgsxr750 has a friend thats a lawyer you might want to contact her and see if she can help you bro.
