How do I get a title?

Does anyone know how to get a title for a bike without one? My brother got a 1972 CB500 from a mechanic friend (owner never paid the bill, mechanic finally told my brother to just take it off his hands). All it needs is a tag now, which requires a title.

Did one of you recently mention a place in Nevada which can title a bike? Something like "International Title"? Are they easier/cheaper than applying for a Lost Title?

Thanks for your help.

To me it still sounds like someone owns it, unless the mechanic put a lean on the title. In which the owner cant sell unless the lien is paid off, since this mechanic, probably told the owner to go fuck off if he int going to pay the bill, the owner probably said fuck that POS i am not gonna pay 1200.00 for a fucking tune up, keep it then asshole!

So anyway, there's a chance that bike could be reported stolen? Theres the chance its going to come back as someone owns it?

But if not, and you do get it titled in your name, let me know cause I am going to go start snagging cars and put them in my name too.

How you found us: .
Yep. Your buddy needs to put a mechanic's lein on the bike. (there are some other rules to follow as a result - such as documenting attempts to work with the original ownder), once the grace period is over, the shop can apply for a title to that bike. Takes some time, but it's the only way to do it.

Just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't understand.
