Buying a bike that has nevern been titled

I am planning to buy 08 CBR from a guys that has never apply for the title. He bought the bike from out of state last year and never title/register the bike. If I buy the bike from him, does he have to register it under his name first and transfer it to me? Or can I apply for title myself?

There are hefty fees for out of state untitled bikes too so make sure you're getting an amazing deal.

there are no hefty fees.. its not really any different from titling an in-state title besides a green sheet.. so i dont see why it'd be any more expensive than registering any other Texas title besides the $14.50 for inspection

gonna have to pay sales tax at least.

i had to do this once with a bike...was a pain in the to figure out how to get around some red tape...

protip: there is a form called "Statement of fact" u can get...amazingly, it doesnt need to be notarized and anyone can write "anything" on it...and if the hourly at the registration office is either too dumb that day, or just doesnt give enough of a ...they shrug when they look at it, and magicly becomes "Fact" according to the state of texas...sometimes...just sometimes...beauracracy can be a good thing.

So the fee for new title application is basically the same as title transfer fee? I know I have to pay sales tax no matter what. I am just wondering if there would be additional fee since the bike was bought new last year but never titled or registered.

there is gonna be some kind of paperwork from the dealer selling it to that guy. your supposed to have that when you go to register and get a title. i forget what its called. certificate of something....ask any dealer or a salesman at a dealer they can tell you. also...you need to check and make sure there are no liens on the bike.

Yes. The seller needs to have this. If he is trying to tell you that he has no title because he never registered it and no mso it probably means its stolen or a repo.

if it out of state inspection then you have a $1 VI-80 form, plus you have to have insurance.
