Process of selling a bike

i will likely be selling my bike tonight and wanted to make sure i do it correctly when talking about the process of signing over the title, making up a receipt, and so forth.

Is it pretty self explanitory? Do I need a witness signature or anything like that?

Do I leave my license plates on the bike or can I take them off?

The buyer is using cash. I plan on making a receipt.

Anything else you can think of that will make this easier?

Take license plate off, write AS IS on the title and receipt, make sure to date the title and receipt. Make sure they sign the title and date it also.


I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're goin', and hook up with them later!!

All you have to do is follow three simple rules. One, never under estimate your opponent (mentality). Expect the unexpected (could work out in your favor). Two, take it outside(or to a table). Never start anything inside the Bar unless it's absolutely necessary. And three, be nice.

Bill of Sale covers both parties, so it's a good idea. If you can notarize it that's better yet. It adds additional proof that the buyer did in fact sell the vehicle, and covers the seller in the goofy event that somehow the bike injures somebody (ie, falls out of the truck and hurts somebody, that person legally can chase the registered owner). A notorized bill of sale just says "The seller is soundly and legally selling this vehicle and the buyer assumes responsibility for it from here on out."

A local cash exchange place or your bank has a notary available.

Thanks HAWKEYE

I would like to say Thanks to HAWKEYE for the great sale of his CBR600F4.

What a great guy and such a nice smooth transaction. The buyer, one of my employees just loves the bike.

The bike was so very clean and was in great showroom condition, very very clean. Everything that HAWKEYE described was acurrate.

Thanks to VCOOK, Ken & Tony for all the help with the sale, this site makes things a hell of alot easier to do things.....



Here are some pics of the new owner of the CBR!!!
