I've had a trooper friend run numbers, not on file. The guy I bought it from had title but wife washed it and original owner is dead.
I e-mailed DMV and they said I might qualify for a bonded title. I don't think so,it has to be under $3000 and I have to put up twice the appraised amount for three years to see if anyone contests it with a real title.
Now for the question has anyone ever had one titled in Al. and had any problems. A lot of my friends have done this with cars but no motorcycles. You send people the numbers and they send you an Al registration and plate. then you take to local patrol and transfer to
your state orig. title. I believe you pay taxes on what you have not a 2000.
