BONDED TITLE

Has anyone ever gone through this process. Thinking about getting a bike with no title, and just wondering what the cost is and the trouble of doing it. Is it worth it. Anyone know if stipulations come with that kind of title?

I have done 2 bonded titles. It will cost $100 to get started plus the cost of the insurance bond which is based on the value of the bike. For a 2005 CBR600rr I did, the bond was about $250? Can't remember exactly. Once you get the title it will be a "blue" title w/ the words bonded at the top. It carries that status for 2 years, after that you have a "clean, clear, blue title."

I did both of mine through Lawrence Auto Title. All stuff was done through the mail. http://www.lawrenceautotitle.com/continue.htm

I got a bonded title on one of my bikes and was done in a day. It's a lot of driving and does cost a bit extra but it's not terrible. The bike I bonded I already had a title it just was never signed into 2 previous owner's names, so I'm not sure how it would go over w/o having a title at all.

I you don't have a title, they send a certified letter to the last registered owner stating that someone else is trying to tile the bike and they have a certain amount of time to contest ownership. After that, they file the paperwork and it gets done.

+1 for Lawrence Auto title.

For a bike that was valued in the +/-$5000 range it was a total of $200 more then a regular title.

You can do it your self and save $100 but to me it just isn't worth it the trouble.

I feel for the people in states that don't have this provision. Some I have found out are a real PITA...
