So just to make sure: you have the title, correct? It is a clear title, just in his name?

Did he sign and dated the back of the title? Was there a bill of sale signed and dated as well?

All you need is the signed title and the signed 130U form and you can get it done.

If the title has a date on it get ready for HUGE fine for late registration.

Are y'all still friends? Might be worth it to get him to go down to TXDOT or give you a power of attorney to do so and get a copy of the title. May work out to be cheaper that way.

All of the years of back registration IIRC.

+1 Ask your friend to get a copy of his title (since it's still in his name/address). Then sign the back using a current date and submit it at your local title transfer office.

Fair market value of your bike is about $3500. you will get taxed on about 80% of that or 2800 ( unless the 130U form shows you paid a higher price ). So 8.25$ of 2800 is $231 + all the standard registration fees and taxes so I would estimate about $300 for all of that give or take some. Then a $25/month fee for each month past the initial 20 days they allow you to get the registration done.

so if the title was dated 2 years ago I would estimate your fees/taxes to get it in your name would be around $900

I would either get a bonded title, OR get your friend to apply for a lost title for $5 then have him re-sign it back over to you. Get to the DMV within 20 days and pay the $300 and get your title....

cheapest way is to get a new title (5.75 or so) from your friend and then sign back of it and apply for new title. doneski

Alright well I talked to my friend and he said he would do it, but his license is expired and he can't get it renewed for whatever reason. What now?
