I have a 74 Kawi without a title. It's been passed around a little and I want it in my name before I do anything to it.

go to sec of state and get a bill of sale slip, little yellow paper. fill it out and have a buddy sign it. $15 later you have a title. i do it all the title.

they run the VIN to make sure it's clean, takes around 1 hour. for some reason everybody thinks it's hard to get a title but it's easy.

And plus when you pm Junkyard you run the risk of being sexually harassed and then have no witnesses.

Let us know how it goes man.

theres no form number, it's just a little yellow slip of paper. it's just called a Bill of sale slip.
the only number on the paper is TR-205 but it's real small and in the bottom corner.

i do these all the time and never had a problem.

OH and BOB, please leave your curtains cracked just a little bit. i enjoy watching you sleep

Hey, Junkyard...would this same process work for a car? I have a buddy that has a vehicle that he had an ex cosign for. They've been apart for years now, he paid the car off, but her name is still on the title. He wants to get her name off but has no means of contacting her to sign off (and is secretly afraid that she will want it or cause some problems). Could he bring the yellow bill of sale paper for me to sign and be done with it?

Does the person that signs the bill of sale have to be the same person the title was originally in?

Like, if I bought a bike online with no title all I'd need is that bill of sale?

no, it don't matter. they run the VIN# through the data base to make sure it's clean and clear.

It's not a 'Bill of Sale'. If you ask for that you're going to get a form TR-52L, a completely different form. That form has to be filled out by a cop or towing agency. It's to get a title for an abandoned vehicle.

The form number he gave you, the TR-205, is the right one. That's to certify you own the vehicle legally. You have to describe how you came to own it. It's called an 'Ownership Certification'.

funny thing is one side of the form say's bill of sale and the other side say's ownership certification LOL. i always just ask for a bill of sale slip but i've been there enuff times so they know already LOL.

And if I read correctly if the bike is over 6 years old it's much easier?
