But they can argue in court the validity of your lien aka making you pay a lawyer, they can argue paying you at all, they have allll of the cards. Call an attorney, I have one sitting right here that works for the bank and see what they tell you :-)
So like I was saying, you could mechanic lien the bike.

Come here you little cake eating sieg heil .

just stay away, there is so many people selling bikes right now, it's not worth the risk .

yes, never a question that you can put the lien on anything actually, this is a property law. Any service rendered without payment can be subject to a "mechanic's lien" but that does not entitle you to own the item in question. Just because you put a 20k roof on a million dollar home doesn't mean you get to trump the banks lien on that home. The law see's no distinction between a home or motorycle in this case. They are both personal property.

That is what we have been talking about. The bank is just not going to give you a title or ownership on something they own just because you have filed a lien on it. For the fifth time now, if what you have placed a lien on is worth less than what it will cost the bank to repo, fix, sell, etc. 9 out of 10 times they right it off aka give you the title. That is HUGE difference between what you stated earlier which started this bs. The bank is not obligated to do anything as they have the first / primary lien. In fact they have no problem taking you to court to fight you for it. If this was a expensive car or a home and not a 2k - 5k motorcycle it would be a different story. 2-5k doesn't get my wife out of bed in the morning much less in the office to file a lawsuit.

Just saying that having a "mechanic's lien" is valid but it doesn't mean you get a title from the primary lien holder. Just means you have a right to any monies received from the sale of the property. That amount is subject to a judges interpretation of your liability. In Texas that is highly in your favor though as we like our mechanics :-) In no way does it imply superceeding the primary lien holder.

- peace
I am so busy doing nothing... that the idea of doing anything - which as you know, always leads to something - cuts into the nothing and then forces me to have to drop everything.
