Lost Title

Okay, so I have a CBR F2 just bought from an MH member who previously bought it from another MH member from a unknown person and finally, from the original registered owner/titled person, a Sheriff in Harris County. The date I only know of is the Sheriff's original registration in 2004.

According to research (much thanks to DvlRacer's informative posts), I only need the Sheriff to just fill out VTR-34, VTR-271, and a copy of his DL? Then the rest I can fill-out/do myself, correct?

Any other problems that I could run into or other information that I need to know about? I'm just trying to get this thing in my name/street legal.
Thanks!

Take the 271, 34, and DL copies to the regional office(7772 Washington Avenue, 77007) and they will issue you a Certified Copy(it's just as good as a real title) for $5.45, but it will still be in his name. They'll give you the 34 back, which is the power of attorney form. Since you'll have power of attorney sign the title over to yourself then take the title and the 130-U to your local tax office and pay the transfer and registration fees.

All these forms can be found in .pdf format by typing them into Google.

Looks like you have it planned out pretty good. Double check the Tax Office address I posted, o know they moved but not sure if it was before or after that post. I believe that addy is good though. Also, the guy above mentioned a bonded title. I say if you are able to go the route in the first post then do it that way, but if not you can resort to a bonded title. You can find the info on how to get a bonded title under my sticky in the "bikes for sale" section. I would link you but I am mobile right now. Good luck, if you have any questions PM me!

I'm probably going to have to go the bonded title route.
But I still don't understand the amount of a surety bond?

I think this answers my question... I can do this instead of filing for a lost title?

I believe it's like $25-$50 per $1000 of the bike's worth.

$5000 bike= $125 bond @ 25/1000

They just insure you that if the original title holder comes back to claim the bike, you won't be without $ or a bike.

Acceptable photo IDs include state or U.S. Government issued photo IDs, such as Texas or other state driver license, identification card, U.S. passport or military identification.

we went the surety bond route on a bike 2 years ago. the bike was worth, according to the DPS at about $1800 or so and surety bond was $200, at the place we went too. just hit the phone book and call and ask.
