What I don't get is, on a street bike don't you have to register it to get plates and insurance?
My deal is on a track bike so none of that applies.

im going throught similar , but i should be getting plates in a few hours. theres a couple ways you can do it. if you can find the people the bike is still registered to, contact them and explain the situation.

get a 130-u form from the registration office or download it online. fill it out, mail it to the registered owner, have them fill in the shaded areas and mail it back to you (you cannot fax it).

basicly your cutting out the middle man, and doing it as if you were buying it from the registered owner. as if the other guy never bought it.

the other thing you can do, is if you are SURE it is not stolen, just forge the signatures on the 130-u. again, just indicating a sale from the legal registered owner to you. thats be aware your is grass if it comes back to haunt you. ive done it before though.

for race bikes, you should at least get a certificate of origin when you buy the bike. with that you can contact the original dealer and see if they will complete a bill of sale to you (be careful, they may say no. they dont have to do it) in that case you will also need them to fill out a "general statement of fact" form. get that form from the registration office, you cant just make one up.

one other thing about race bikes /track bikes. DO NOT EVER UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES SAY THE WORD "RACE" OR "TRACK" IN A STATE OR FEDERAL OFFICE. this will mean months of extra paperwork, money and pain in your .

there are alot of special rules for getting a bike thats been raced registered. forunatly, there are no rules or forms to race a stock bike or make it a race bike. this means the only way they will ever know it was a race bike is if you tell them. SO DONT. if they ask why it was never registered just say you dont know. if they ask about racing say no. if for some reason they press you for info, i would make up some BS about it originally being a wedding gift, and the wedding never happened, so it sat in garage for years and years or something bs like that.

no you cant just go buy plates. what he means is for a track bike you dont need them, but i guess he wants to be the registered owner.

in that case your screwed.. either jump through the hoops, or just be satisfied with your bill of sale or whatever you got when you forked down you cash. but if you do want it registered you can get it done, you just have to know how.

I went to license office and asked a lot of questions and even mentioned it was a race bike before i bought. they never said anything like that.
Even pointed out i could register it as an off road bike and avoid a lot of money since it wont have plates or ever be on the road.

every registration office person will tell you something different. if you dont like what they tell you, just go back a few hours later, and hopefully talk to a different employee...im not kidding!

so your saying the virginia department of registration has the title? that does suck. contact the original owners, they may have to file for a duplicate title and complete a bill of sale to you.

didnt the guy you bought it from have anykind of bill of sale? it was on the title that got sent off to VA, no one wrote it down?

at least you have the VIN #, try contacting the VA registration office, explain the situation, and ask if they can help you locate the registered owners.

I believe that is true. It's like income taxes, it's all so complicated even the experts aren't sure whats right all the time.
