its a 250r, 08+. its in pretty mint condition except a large scratch from the slide off the road, very low miles. the bike landed in some foliage and did not sustain major damage. the rider walked away from it and never came back for it. the cops did not want to take the time to pull the bike out, it was a bitch to do. it sat in the foliage for some time before being removed. problem is he does not not have a title to pass on ownership to me, its clearly his bike he has recovered it and stored it for years.

how did the key come out? I'm assuming it was in there when it fell...

I recently purchased a mx race bike and the owner had no title. All I needed for the replacement title application was to have the bike inspected at the local police department to get the vin#. I then needed to fill out another forum that included a copy of the check (bill of sale). On this form was the previous owners contact information. This is all turned into the state and I am expecting to to see the title in the mail in eight weeks.

I need to get the title to get a sticker to ride in the national forest. Not sure if this will work for your situation but so far it appears tobe working for me. Good luck.

Jeff

I agree with deeppowder, all you should need is the vin #, and either a police report saying its not stolen or something from the DMV or wherever you get it registered at and get a lost title. Should be fine from there.

Good luck!

as for the key, when I bought my house, the garage had a lock but no key. any good locksmith can fashion a key for you. $50. that way you don't have to get a new key cylinder or worry about going keyless.

If you want to ride it on the street, yeah, go the local PD and get it taken care of, but it's a track only bike, I wouldn't worry about it.

I would do a vin search through the DMV. May be a lien holder. Would not spend a dime on it till then. Contact them, how ever the cal law reads. In Texas we send it certified mail. Keep all documentation. Send them a big bill stating that your services for retrieving it from the canyon, they will either pay the bill, or send you a title. Or make you apply for an abandon title. You have to show that you made an effort to contact lien holder. Do not offer any phone numbers when you mail them by certified mail. In Texas I believe it's a 90 day process.
Don't forget the storage charges per day.
Good luck!!!

That all sounds like a pain in the ass. I'd try to either sell it as a track bike sans title or part it out and take the money and buy a legit bike.

Glad you asked, the story sounded fishy to me.

The key was simply not there. I think the rider took it i think. Going to run the vin and pray it doesn't come back stolen.
