question about a bike I sold in the summer.

Some of you might remember that I sold my 2003 Kawasaki zx6r during the summer. My dad told me that there is a lady who called the house saying she bought the bike from who I sold it to and I guess she needs to transfer the name over to her name. I haven't tried contacting her yet to see what she needs and what not. But I'm pretty sure she needs my signature to get the bike in her name. Not sure how the she got my house phone number, when I don't even live there.

I do not mind signing the paper to get the bike in her name, but I am very busy and I don't wanna take responsibility for the bike from when I sold it till now. Like if the person who I sold it to got tickets on it, ran red lights, etc.

What are things I need to know? Has anyone dealt with anything like this?

thanks MH, and to anyone who remembers me/knows me. - haven't posted in here in a while (I just lurk now, since I don't have a bike anymore)

If i were you, i'd contact the guy YOU sold the bike to just to make sure the he indeed did sell the bike to this lady. if so, then i dont really see an issue if she just needs the title signed over to her..


I guess the important part..was the title signed over to the person YOU sold it to? if so...she can go pound sand.

Another good reason why you fill in the purchasers info on the title when you sign it over. MAKE them have to transfer it into there name for the next sale...

just keep in mind that since you sold it in the summer, she would have to pay hundreds in late fees and penalties depending on what date you put on the paperwork. You could call the HCTRA and local city/county courts to check the plate for tickets and fines.

Unfortunately, I didn't save the guys contact info... So don't know how to get ahold of him.

but yes, when I sold the bike, I did fill out the backside of the title and put him as the new buyer and his info and what not. Also filled out the title transfer form with them their also. I'll have to go home and check all the folder for the bike and see all the copies I have of the paper work filled out.

anyone know how this lady found my house phone number?

well, if thats the case, then she can go away. the bike is no longer yours and the title is not in your name. she will have to get with the current owner about all that .

this is what you should have done.... one of these three options. I guess you could still back date the forms

Man it's NOT hard to get a phone number.
The internet can prob link you to your parents address and with that alone she could call info or search Google, Spokeo, Facebook, whatever to find more info on how to get a hold of you. I've had to do it before in a similar title situation. I also did it a few years ago to find the original owner of a bike I was going to buy because I was suspicious that it was REALLY all I was being told.

Just a little internet investigation...that's all.
Plus...the title prob has your parents address on it if you lived there when you bought the bike.

Bike is probably stilll in your name, person you sold to never transferred the title. Then decided to resell before transferring so didn't want to pay sales tax and title fees. So the lady probably got your info from TxDOT as you're still owner of record (yes they do give out this info in certain cases). I bet phone number she called matches the address you had on title right?

no I think the bike is still in my name thou. Even thou I filled out all that info, the buyer is responsible for taking the paper work to the court house and transferring it over to his name. (which I think he did not do).

I honestly don't remember if I did or did not submit that form. I sold a bike and a car during the summer and I though I did it, but I don't remember and I'll just have to check the files when I go to my parents house.

Doesn't seem to be any horror stories, so helping her out seems like it won't come bite me in the . I'll give her a call later on today or the weekend.

Just type in your name and see what comes up. Same happened to me when I baught my bike. the head said that the tittle was clear and in his name, but it was just signed and he never transfered tittle to his name.

I went to yellow pages and found the previous owners name and phone number.

Lazy People!

That very thing happened to me. Sold a bike to someone I thought I could trust. He never transfered the title, sold the bike to the next guy that also didn't do the paperwork, who of course ran into somebody with it then fled the scene.

Eventually I was able to get everything squared away and didn't cost anything, but I learned it is important to submit your sale docs to the state.

Next time I sell a bike the plate stays with me, as well as make sure I submit my docs the next business day.

Read my post #43. Contact the guy she got the bike from and make sure it is who you sold it to. http://www.motohouston.com/forums/sh...14#post1761014

Within 30 days of the sale, you should have filled out a VTR-346 form and sent it to TxDMV Vehicle Titles and Transfers. It's a CYA document that notifies the state that you sold it, but it's up to the buyer to transfer the title and pay the tax and registration. This is why you should keep the plates when you sell a vehicle - it pretty much forces them to go get it registered ASAP.
