how to do a bonded title.

I see a lot of ppl asking what to do about getting a title or how to. A lot of ppl advise to stay away from motos or cars with no title. I say go for it as long as you run the vin number and it comes back clear from liens and not stollen of course. You can bargin with the owner and buy low with not much work to put in.

1.go to your local tax office get the statement of facts or download it from the dmv website.
2.go to the tax office off ih 10 and washington get the bonded title form from the front desk fill them out completly
3.the tax office will give you a rejection letter after this take it to somewhere where they do surety bonds get one I believe. If your bike is less then 6000 your bond should be 120.00
4.go back to the local tax office and viola apply for the title they will give it to you then you can do the registration and inspection. I just did mine today 4hours the most.

Hope this helps ppl

Did a bonded on my buell. Owner had moved and lost the title but had all the documentation and receipts. Bought one online for 100$ but up the vin # so I knew it wouldn't fly. Googled bonded titles and found a place on westhiemer. Drove down there and 30 mins and 100$ later had another bond. Went back to local DMV and 30 mins later was done. Totaly painless process except at local DMV where they had some confusion that it had already been titled in Texas before. Apperently out of state bonded title is a little more trouble but not much.

You do need it inspected before you goto the DMV and make sure to get paperwork!

FYI, the DMV will keep all paperwork you bring in as "evidence" for the "hearing". So make a copy of all paperwork before you go down there. All you really need is insurance, inspection (with paperwork if previously not inspected in Texas), and bill of receipt. You can get a generic bill online and print it out.

You'll get the actual title in the mail a couple of months later.

Completely painless except for Houston traffic.

ps. By local DMV I mean your local county tax office...

FYI: the title will actually say "bonded" on it for 3 years.

where does it say bonded? maybe I just haven't looked in the right place. I walked out of the tax office after the process with a title in my hand, if i recall correctly.

I completed this process recently but I had a big first step: getting a form 68A from my area police department. My scenario was that I had a 1974 bike with no title. I submitted to the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles a bill of sale (simple receipt), a tax collector hearing/bonded title application (FORM VTR-130-SOF), Statement of Physical Inspection (FORM VTR-270) and received my rejection due to not having a (FORM 68A). I took the bike on the back of the truck where Houston Police does the inspections (near their impound). One police officer made a statement of some sort that they don't do that, even as I showed him the letter from Texas DMV. A fellow police officer (women are so much more understanding) went ahead and did it without argument. I then resubmitted my paper work, received their expected official rejection (letter, not a form) along with a Hearing/Bond Checklist (FORM VTR-130-SOF) and stamped my application (FORM VTR-130-SOF). I took those items to a private company that does surety/bonded titles, this one cost $125. "Albertinhouston" has the contact info on that, it was along Westheimer west but not past the Beltway 8. I now have the bonded title but need to do an inspection on it before I try to register it, and I do have it insured, liability only (it's a beater, but we love it).

Hope this helps, and that this thread lives forever so that I don't feel compelled to type out form numbers again for this process..now back to cleaning bathroom!

FYI: State Farm will issue title surety bonds. I don't know if you have to be a current customer or not, though. They wanted $57 on $3000 for me, but I have my insurance through them.
