Don't understand the reluctance of some to buy a bike with no title if the vin checks out. As long as it's cheap enough to justify the extra cost on tax. In three years you go back to the tax office and apply for a standard, non bonded title.

Think I'm going to stay away from it. Seller doesn't have the title and it wasn't in his name. No explanation why he didn't transfer it, just "I lost it".
