It sucks but I think you're screwed.

The above statement could not be more wrong in the state of texas. I purchased a 2008 SV650 in July of 2009 with 750 miles on it. The bike must've belonged to a beginner who dropped it once on both sides then had his full coverage total the bike

I lucked out big time, got a fresh bike with minor damage (it was only my 2nd bike any how and i was expecting to drop it too, while still learning so i didnt mind)

I went thru the salvage/rebuild process, took the red title and eventually sent it off after getting the mandatory state inspection and filling out the repair/receipts form (mentioned above) then the title came back Blue Texas Rebuilt.

Isn't there a Lemon Law for this type of sales?

I think Lemon law refers to manufacturer. But I you're thinking in the right direction. Basically someone sold a bike as something it was not. That's fraud. Even if the seller "didn't know", it should be his problem now to deal with it. Then add on top the absurdity that the buyer paid twice the value of the bike. I'd be I got ripped off.

There are "totaled" vehicles in Texas, which as I understand are able to be re-titled as "salvage" or "rebuilt" after an inspection, but some state issue a non-rebuildable title. I believe Florida (and apparently Michigan) is one of those, and once that non-rebuildable tag is attached to the VIN, my understanding is that most states will not issue a title, even if rebuilt. It's possible that the previous owner obtained a Texas title before that VIN was flagged as non-rebuildable. I honestly don't know, but I have bought a lot of parts from salvage companies around the country and for some reason Florida and Ohio stick out in my mind as being places where I've seen frames that looked perfect that were noted as having VINs that could never be registered for street use due to the title branding.
