bill of sale

Anyone have a sample bill of sale form? I have never sold a bike or anything else (car, etc.) and made a bill of sale. I've had a few serious bites on my bike and I need ideas or even better a sample form to plug in the info for the sale. Thanks for any help.

My bike is still registered in Illinois even though I now live in Indiana. Should I use a IL or IN state dmv form?

Just make the bill of sale say that you sold model of bike with # of miles to Person on Date as is and make 2 copies and both of you sign each.

That simple


I John Doe Sold a 2001 Honda F4i (VIN#) with 14k miles to Jim Doe on March 18,2008 AS IS.


Both signatures


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

Now that I don't know the answer to. Some states require certain things to be on the BOS so if you can find a generic one that meets the need of both I'd say go with that. Better safe than sorry

Use an IL one since it is registered there. For the buyer, he will have to register and pay taxes where ever he/she resides, so no problem there.

I don't even fuck with a bill of sale if there is a title involved anymore.

Signature of seller and date (on title)

Buyer gets the title, seller gets a copy.


A bill of sale means nothing. The only time I do them is if I buy a dirtbike from a stranger with no title. Even that is just for contact info if it should come back stolen somehow.

I don't know about that. If you take the time to get it notorized, it can save your hide. If the new buyer is riding the bike home and crashes into another person, it saves you from getting chased by the other driver. If he gets pulled over, it provides *some* proof that the bike is now his. I don't know how it would hold up in court though.

Some advice from my personal experience:

Once the buyer makes the purchase, go with them to the DMV or currency exchange and make sure they transfer everything.


My bad experience>>>>

I sold a bike before, signed it over, and though it was done deal. Months later, I received a phone call from a tow truck business asking when I was going to pay the $2500 for the tow and storage for the impounded bike. Due to the fact the title was never transfered, I was held responsible for all fees and had to reinstate insurance on it to show the police department just to get it released. I sold/traded the bike for $500 cash and 2000 Kawasaki Jet Ski, but ended up losing money in the deal. Never trust anyone!!



A few of you may remember the bike too!!

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.

Had a similar experience to Jimm. Sold a car, was nice and let the buyer (who was my friend) use the plates until he could get to the DMV in a couple of days. 3 months later got a letter in the mail saying MY license was getting suspended because he got pulled over with no insurance. I took the bill of sale to the DMV and they took care of it.

Namaste

To the times I'll never remember, with the friends I'll never forget.
