help with bike registration.

ok so im buying a 1990 FZR 1000. the guy im buying it from bought it from his freind in seattle, WA. the original owner signed it on the back, but it looks like he was supposed to sign the front too. its a WA title of course.

should i have it mailed back and forth etc, or just forge it (i know its not stolen), or have the dude im buying it from sign his freinds name?

has anyone gone through registering an out of state bike before? is there any other paperwork im going to need. like the bill of sale form, what is it 130-u?

ive heard there are title services places that will "just get it done" no matter what the deal is, are these legit/reputable/worth it?

what im mainly worried about is what i need for it being from out of state.

any help would be uber appreciated. im not trying to get pulled over any time soon.

thanks!

I would have probably not posted my intentions on a public forum and just got the work done.

as long as the bike was not stolen, just get some oen who can sign like the owner to do it, if they have any problems or say the signiture dosnt match right they rae going to contact the owner and ask him if he signed it and he is going to say yes so its not that big of a deal right?

exactly, anyways the courthouses doesnt examine the freaking signature hardcore to see if the guy signed it or not

yeah, i guess just to cover my ill have the dude im buying it from sign it. if he is sure its cool, then its cool. no reason for me to risk my own rear.

i still need to know if there is anything odd for it being out of state. or easier...i wish!

Use the 130-U form. It doubles as a bill of sale. You can download from txdot

ftp://ftp.dot.state.tx.us/pub/txdot-...orms/130-u.pdf Of course he will need to sign it but it is up to you how he does that. I just bought a bike from Pennsylvania and that was all I needed. No need to pay someone else to do it for you.

Just be sure to make sure it's supposed to be signed where your thinking about signing it, other states are wierd, the best thing to do is take the time to ask the courthouse staff "What needs to be done to make this transferrable" They will tell you where to sign and what to put, you can decide from there how it gets done....

It's kind of a catch-22 technically it's fraud if you sign his name but... if the guy doesn't mind it's sort of a victemless crime.

If you sign his name and he didn't want to sell the bike then you stole it, if you sign his name and he doesn't care then it will never be an issue. If you mail it back to him and wait a couple weeks to have it done right then it's a non-issue anyways.

If you do have someone sign for him, make sure the way they sign matches exactly, I don't mean in it's form, but in it's content. If the original signature said "First Middle Lastname" then make sure you put that and not "First M Lastname"

It comes down to "What do you need more, time or money" IF you are rich, get the title company to do it for you, if your not rich then do it your self, they aren't going to do anything you can't do on your own, it's just that they are doing it so that you don't have to mess with it.
