So, I'm selling my bike to buyer this Wednesday. He's coming in from Killeen, Bell county. Title is clear, clean and in my possession. I need to know the proper steps to complete the transaction. I sign and date front and back of title, right? I need to have a close look at it. I also will draw up a Bill of Sale with both our names, addresses, sale date, bike details and price. I see a title transfer form mentioned, does he provide that or do I? He's bringing cash so no worries there. He saw the bike yesterday, good guy, 24 yo. serviceman. Any tips appreciated. Greg

You need to generate a bill of sale, sign the title correctly and full out a dog notification of vehicle transfer it is usually done via form by mail but appears to be able to be done online now too

The above poster was correct about meeting at the DMV NOT the tax assessor in order to fill out this form on the spot it's none of your duty abd out of your hands if the buyer doesn't register the bike that's what the transfer notification form is for...to covere your

How are we to meet at the DMV when he lives in Bell County, 3 hours away? Doesn't he have to go to his local county DMV/tax office to pay sales tax, transfer title and get plates? I should pull my plate off the bike, right?

He is a very upright citizen, I see no chance of him not following the proper steps, he's in the army after all. I was hoping to avoid a trip anywhere if possible and just fill out all docs and forms at my house, due to my schedule Wednesday.

That's what I thought. As far as my side of the transaction goes, I can handle it at home, right?

If the buyer isn't shady you can let them have your plates. Otherwise they need to get permit to ride it and they can only be on route to get the plate. IF you have a signed and dated bill of sale the only risk is a possible toll road fine.

I understand why people keep their plates but it seems like an extreme move and keeps the buyer from riding their new bike for a few days.

I always keep my plates. People's laziness isn't worth it.

Certainly avoids risk.

Turned off any buyers? When do you tell them you will be keeping the plates?

I've purchased bikes from out of state sight unseeen.

I've purchased things from crazy mofos on craigslist.




There's no way I'd buy something sight unseen AND from a crazy on craigslist.

You can also use this site:

https://www.nicb.org/theft_and_fraud...check/vincheck

Tells you if its been stolen or salvaged, but I don't think it's as accurate as the pay sites like Cycle Vin, etc.
