VIN Help: Can someone please run a bike's VIN for me?

I'm running into some issues at the tax collectors office with a bike. Can someone please run a VIN for me?

It seems now I have to prove to them that the bike is a theft recovered salvaged title.

ya bro thanks.

it's funny, most people are checking to see if the bike is not stolen. I am checking to see if it has been salvaged due to theft.

anyhow, I think the tax people are giving me the run around and wanting me to produce "rebuild" receipts. I may just buy some handlebars, levers, grips, and lights and bring those receipts in.

Guess you got it, can't say we didn't see this coming! Once you get it titled you'll have a badass bike at a killer price

reason I ask is cause I'll be ready to register by end of summer I hope. and if I got to start coming up with more documents then I need to start now.

what is the process anyway?
it's really not too tough...just prepare yourself for a few wasted hours in line at the tax collector's office.

1. Purchase bike.
2. Fill out 1030U form
3. Fill out some rebuilt form that has spots for reasons and receipts. must get notarized.
3. get state safety inspection. pay an additional $1 for a VI-130 (i think that is what it is called) form.
4. Goto tax collector and hope they don't turn you away.

sticky anyone? lol

my only mistake was that I didn't bring them any receipts...they just don't understand that a bike can be salvaged for cosmetic reasons I guess. They said that a stolen/recovered bike won't be issued a salvaged title based on it being stolen alone.

nope, I just went to some oil swap shop that does state inspections.

well, i'm not sure of the "new build". I would suggest keeping receipts for the motor and other parts, because you will have to show them, and engine serial numbers, and donor bike VIN and stuff.

good luck.
