Unhappy Title change

I want to buy a bike from another person selling. What do I have to do to change the title to my name? I dont know and he does not know what to do. What do I do?

yep. what you need to do is have them sign the title over to you, AND fill out a 130-U form available here... http://www.dot.state.tx.us/VTR/vtrreginfo.htm?pg=form1

the texas dot webpage explains the whole process pretty easily.

then take that in along with money and proof of insurance and inspection, and ur good.

it helps a lot to already have the 130 form on you when you go to make the purchase, then you both can fill it out right there...and never have to talk to the guy/gal again. :laughing6 :laughing6

Or, you can download that form from txdot first, then go to buy the bike. Get the seller to just sign and print his name where needed. Then you can go solo to the court house and tell them that you paid alot less so you don't have to pay as much tax on it...

According to the state of Texas, I bought my 2002 Xterra for $3K and my 2002 RC-51 for $2.5K...icon12

you have 30 days from the purchase date to register the bike, if you leave the date ont eh bill of sale blank then any day can be the pruchase date, so then i just drive it until i get pulled over in that case i say i jus tgot the bike a few days ago and the title is in the mail so i can register it then i get it registerd the next day and no tickets for me
