It costs a bit over $6 to do a basic VIN check. There's a lot of info even on a basic check. If you want a full blown detailed check it runs more, but I can't remember how much, but for a $1500 2014 CBR1000RR it would be worth it if you really beleive the guy has a bike and isn't just luring you into a trap to roll ya for the cash.

I think you're missing something here...

What?

A bonded title is to give a victim a chance to reclaim their loss - but in the mean time, it gives the current property holder the right to treat the property as his own.

If there's no claim on the property within 3 years, a clear title is issued. I've done this before. It SUCKS. It's EXPENSIVE.

The point is - I don't think this bike has anyhing to do with titles, bikes, friends - - - I think it's a set-up to get rolled.

A top end bike at a trow-away price. I've bought repo bikes before. Impossible to get that bike for $1500. And usually you get a pair of sunglasses or something under the passenger seat. This isn't right unless there is one of two things going to happen.

The bike has nothing to do with repo and is hot and a bike that new "should" show this on a VIN check. Regardless, the price is so ridiculous there MUST be a catch (and I'd assume a pretty bad one)

Or there is no bike and it's just fishbate so when he shows up with $1500 the potential buyer ends up going home with only a barrel bruise on his forehead and no more money.

If this were legit, and an honest seller - a title (bonded or not) is not a big deal.

But this deal is insane. There's something way wrong with this kind of ad. Who gives a about the title. Even if there is a title - there is something bad bad going on here.

Yes, this is very clearly a stolen bike. He even says in the ad that he will part it out. But people need to know for future transactions what the risk of having a bonded title is. You're not just automatically good to go... If the guy who owns it was deployed and gets back in 10 months to find the bike gone, you're gonna get buttfucked when he comes back. I mean getting to ride this bike for 10 months for $1,500 may not be all that sour of a deal, but you get my point.
