This has probly been covered somewhere. Post the link if you know a thread where this information is already discussed. I'm looking at a couple of bikes at salvage yards, online only so far. I have zero experience buying salvage, so I'm looking for advice from people who have been there, done that. One of the outfits is Copart. Looks like they sell to jobbers who flip wrecks in volume. I'm wondering what I'm up against as an individual bidder. Are you able to inspect the bike thoroughly . . . not just look at it, but start it and check it over? Seems they want a deposit, that makes me suspicious already. What were the other fees besides the purchase price? If the bike comes with a branded or salvage title, what problem is there getting it registered and put on the road?
