He needs to get a duplicate title. Bring his license to the title bureau, and they can issue him a new one that can be transferred to you. You might as well do the transfer while you're there.

I am going to pick up a 03 KLX 300, the catch is that the title is lost. He has a notarized bill of sale and says the numbers come back clean, what do I need to do to get a title and get this thing plated?
Call me. 440-313-1069. Don't feel like typing it all out again, and can't seem to find the previous post. Short version is a title exists for that bike and it is illegal for him to sell it to you without providing it. If it was in his name at some point he can go to the title office for a duplicate.

Yeah, don't get suckered into the, my friend has the title still or I will send it to you shit. I got suckered once, kind of. Bought a KE100 off a guy who asked $500 but didn't have the title, or at least one with the right serial numbers. He said he must have grabed the wrong one at his uncles in Indy and would grab the right one next week. I said, then I'm only giving $200 now and the other $300 when the real title appears. Guy disappeared, literally moved! I lucked out when a guy at VMD from Pennsylvania said he'd give me $400 for it without the title so his boy could have a learner bike.

Lucky Luke

Oh, and a side note for Indypup. The guy was from Troy. (Inside joke)

According to him, the previous owner lost the title, so it was never titled in his name, he has a notarized bill of sale fromt he previous owner. I don't intend to give th guy a dime until I can figure out if it is either a) not hot, and b) I can get a title.

I know, I'm skeptical as well, i figure I can take the vin to the sheriff's office and have it run to make sure it's legit, there has to be some way to get a title for the thing.

He's legally obligated to provide you a title at time of sale.

Bill of sale and "the numbers are clean" is just horseshit.

There are actually several redundant and overlapping sections of the Ohio Revised Code that cover this issue, but here is the most relevant and clear:


4519.67 Additional prohibited acts.

(A) No person shall do any of the following:
(1) Procure or attempt to procure a certificate of title to an off-highway motorcycle or all-purpose vehicle, or pass or attempt to pass a certificate of title or any assignment of a certificate of title to an off-highway motorcycle or all-purpose vehicle, or in any other manner gain or attempt to gain ownership to an off-highway motorcycle or all-purpose vehicle, knowing or having reason to believe that the off-highway motorcycle or all-purpose vehicle has been stolen;
(2) Sell or offer for sale in this state an off-highway motorcycle or all-purpose vehicle on which the manufacturer’s or assigned vehicle identification number has been destroyed, removed, covered, altered, or defaced with knowledge of the destruction, removal, covering, alteration, or defacement of the manufacturer’s or assigned vehicle identification number;
(3) Except as otherwise provided in this chapter, sell or transfer an off-highway motorcycle or all-purpose vehicle without delivering to the purchaser or transferee of it a certificate of title, or a manufacturer’s or importer’s certificate to it, assigned to the purchaser as provided for in this chapter.
(B) Whoever violates this section shall be fined not more than five thousand dollars, imprisoned in the county jail or workhouse not less than six months nor more than one year or in the penitentiary not less than one year nor more than five years, or both.
Effective Date: 01-01-2004


So if he's an asshole about it, you could always buy it, then turn him.

Working midnights... ...sheesh. Heck, I don't even ride much to work during the week anymore since they "turned back the clocks". I'm worried about deer on the ride home at 8pm- and you gotta know that route is prime deerstrike territory.
wow, you ride Idaho, Kansas, AND Ohio...amazing

He'll never see his money again. If the guy won't produce a title just walk away, he'll just deny it to the police anyways.

I sent the guy an e mail back telling him no dice unless there are papers, and informed him of the law.

we'll see where this goes...
