Advice how to work a three way trade?

So I'm looking for a 8-900cc cruiser and most craigslist adds are pricey. But there a few of them looking to trade for a bigger 1500cc or so bike. And the odd thing is cl adds for big cc cruisers are pretty reasonable. So I'd like to buy the big bike and immediately trade it for a smaller one. Any tips on how to do this?

Tips to avoid sales tax or tips on what? I would say it sounds like a shaky scheme at best.

It's not an easily workable idea. Not impossible but not easy.
The problem is, titles. Vehicles aren't like buying and selling dishwashers.

Transferring a title takes time and money. Selling a vehicle without transferring has it's own issues.

Easier to buy one and flip it, then go after the one you want.

Wouldn't be that big of a deal. Buy the big cc bike get title don't sign or date it and then trade for whatever you want. Not really legal, but its done all the time.

When I bought my bike the guy was flipping it and he just had the guy(original owner) sign it but not date it. Like mentioned above, not legal but happens all the time. I just sold my Nova and I did the same thing for the buyer. Granted I know the guy and had a signed and dated bill of sale. I agree with the comment above though, just buy the bigger bike and try to flip it for a little profit.
