Hell yes I do!

Last ran in 07...... I paid $1 per cc

Im in the same boat on one of my bikes- im waiting for it to "fall out of the system" in cali. eventually this happens- but you can't go and try and title it or the time will reset. best to check online- you can put in the VIN and the license plate # (hopefully you have it) and it will show you the back fees etc on the bike.

if it desn't show anything then its off the records.

it takes somewhere between 7 and 10 years - so quite a wait if its fresh.

It's just too tempting to visit http://dmv.ca.gov/FeeCalculatorWeb/index.jsp

I've got one that was last registered just about 7 years ago, and it'll probably be a couple more until I need to worry about registration, but I'd rather wait until I'm sure it's dropped out, lest I be hit with a huge bill.
four years and it drops, unless it is a reported theft or has a lean. i've never heard of being able to do a registration search online. if registration is due you can pay it online but there is a code on the renewal notice that you need.

I bought this when I turned 18 from an old guy who'd bought it ten years ago as a project for his son... son moved on to other things and then moved out, and so I got lucky! The bike came in five milk cartons... $500.00. I suspect I over-paid a little bit, but it was worth it.

Piecing it together:


After a while:


Years later, I picked up this for $600...


Which currently looks like this...




... on it's way to hopefully becoming something like this...

My Ex just sold her 2006 Kawasaki EX500 (slime green) for $1000. Cracked fairing and busted mirror was all that was wrong with it. Need s the money desparately (fuckin economy). If I had the cash i'd have given her $1500.

My Cheap Bike

Couldn't pass up this 2002 Bandit 1200 that needs a lot of TLC. PO wanted $1500, I talked him down to $900. Going to be posting some questions on how to repair/upgrade this bike over in the RoadWarriors section.

What's on the list to fix so far? That bike looks to be in great shape for $900!

A Bandit for $900 is a screaming deal. Not that there isn't tons of great knowledge on this board, but if you want Bandit specific information head over to "maximum suzuki".

Changing to naked (it's already a standard) is done all the time. On the gen 1 bandit (what I have), the instruments are already mounted to the handle bars so it's much easier. As such, I can convert from naked to not so naked in 30 minutes.
