    Starting 11/5, CL will begin charging $5.00/ad at least on the Raleigh site. I've read that they've been doing that elsewhere previously. On the plus side, that''ll probably kill a lot of the scammer's ads.

    Edit: not for all ads. It looks like it's just for vehicle ads.

    If it's really missing the owner can go to the DMV and apply for a replacement. If they won't do that I'd suspect they don't actually have legal title to the bike. In that case they/you can get a bonded title by paying a fee related to the value of the bike to a title bond company. Beware however that other states, SC for sure being one of them, will not honor a bonded title. Many people go for a VT title but I have read that can cause issues with your insurance. I generally click right off any bike that doesn't have a title clean or salvage because it's too risky. I have been wondering about using a Power of Attorney to apply for missing titles where the owner seems too lazy to do it themselves. If SC allowed bonded titles I'd be all over using a POA for that purpose.

    SC with no title is not worth the hassle most of the time. Can confirm.

    Bid bond process is a PITA. A bunch of money up front plus the fee. If the bike ends up coming up stolen you lose all of that money. Before I did anything I would take the VIN number to a local law enforcement officer and have him run it to make sure that it is not stolen.
    Ended up going through that whole process before on an xt350. Thought everything was fine until I found out that all the paperwork I had was forged. Lost all my money that I invested in the bike but I did get the purchase price of the bike back after they arrested the guy that sold me the bike and he pled out by paying me back. He ended up with being charged with obtaining property by false pretenses because they couldn't prove he actually stole the bike.
