Salvage motorcycle

Has anyone had any luck rebuilding a salvage motorcycle? Besides getting running can you get a title, tags etc. I think you can only get liability insurance buts that's no biggie.
Thanks

I buy salv bikes at auction all the time(5 of my 9 bikes have rebuilt salv titles), as long as the title isnt for parts only it should be able to get registered but you may need someone with a dealer license to do it. Im not sure on the ins thing for bikes but I know salv titled cars can get full coverage.

There are TONS of bikes that are salvage that only have scratches on the fairings. even a small 1 inch scratch will be counted as full replacement.

Look at it this way. I salvage title is better then missing title. ;-)

You can get full coverage. Won't cost any extra. Not sure where this rumor started.

Thanks my local motorcycle shop said you can't get full coverage. I would just get liability anyways. Take care
