Title questions? Need OG help

looking at picking up a bike, but the title issue is suspect. The title is out of state, and has been signed by someone other than the person trying to sell it. What are the procedures to get this transferred, if any. Can I legally register it, or can I get a bonded title instead?

this isnt exactly OG help, its more basic knowledge, an out of state title is fine under a few situations...the bike should reside out of state for one (or have been here no more than 30 days) and the sellers name should match the title of course, those are primary and essential pre-requisites before a transaction to not only be standard, but also legal. although others may disagree in some repsects, this is my typical approach.

Yet you still missed the point. The siggy isnt the owner. This will certainly cause a problem

Easiest way to do it is if the person who is selling it to you has not written their name in as the buyer on the back of the title then just write your name in and forge a title transfer application.

Who was it signed by? Did they have power of attorney to do so?

I will tell you one thing, they were WAY more strict with my 1 out of state title, than any of my in state titles I've transferred.

They weren't going to register my Duc at first, even though I had receipts and bill of sales notarized along with original correctly signed title all from the dealership, because the title was in the name of "Ducati New Orleans", and the bill of sale was under "TTRNO", which is the company that owns Ducati New Orleans and Triumph New Orleans...
They were both even signed by the same person.

I'm pretty sure you can get a bonded title on mostly anything with a VIN provided it's not stolen or totaled.

I know about the leaving it blank, but it was signed by the guy who "originally sold it to the guy" that I want to get it from. But this guy is nowhere to be found. I personally think, that guy screwed this kid over, and the kid just didn't know what to look for in a title.

That's what happened with my R6. Never got a hold of the original guy. If the person on the title can't be found to request a duplicate title for $5, you end up spending a couple hundred on bonding.

The previous title has to be a Texas title in order to do bonding.

LoL really? I've dealt with people with felony charges of falsifying a vehicle title application. Is the bike rare enough or good enough of a deal to warrant the type of headache and frustration it is bound to cause you? Not sure of it'll help you since its an out of state transfer but read my sticky on the m/c classifieds.

My old f2 had a Maryland title signed by too many people. Got a bonded title on it,...was a major pita,...admittedly.

how did you get it bonded if it was an out of state? It looks like this is what I will need to do as it has a tennessee title

Huh? So the seller that sold it to the seller signed it but there is no buyer signature or name on the back? If this is the case that's what I'm talking about. You get a title transfer application and forge the name and sig that is on the title right now. Sure it's technically a felony but we don't worry about things like that over here on Main street. LOL.

Genuine OG advice?

There are plenty of bikes for sale out there.

Either make THEM get the title straight or find another one.
No reason why you should get stuck with the cost and hassle of doing legwork they should have done.

Start making phone calls to tax offices whether it be TN or TX, and ask them. Talk to at least 2 different people though you are sure the info is correct....
