Brother purchased a CT70 clone with no title

Couple week back my brother purchased a JinCheng Dax JC70 with no title for $450. This week a dealer appraised it for $300. He'll be applying for a bonded title in Illinois. Hopefully this goes well for him. It's his first real motorbike.

I don't know about Illinois, but in AZ, a bonded title would cost more than the bike is worth. I sold 2 untitled dirt bikes cheap for the same reason.

That's hilarious! I went in to the Tool Store in forest park to look at that bike a few weeks ago. I think it was going to be too big for stuffing in the back of my Fiesta along with my work equipment.

How does it ride? I forgot how long do you have to keep the bike when there's a bonded title applied to it?

In AZ a bonded title has to be kept for 3 years. The vehicle can be sold, but the new owner has to pay for the bond until the 3 years are up. Then it is converted to a regular title. To me it wouldn't be worth it unless the vehicle has some decent value.

I have applied and recieved many Arizona bonded titles and never paid more than $55 total, Just did it again a few months ago.

This also is not accurate, you may want to recheck how the bonded title process works in Arizona or visit another DMV office.

Most of the CT70 clones can't be licensed here in Oregon because they lack the required EPA certificate. I would buy a junked but titled CT70 frame and either swap the clone parts onto it or stamp the VIN on the clone and destroy the Honda frame.
