No-title track bikes?

Is it common for a track bike not to have a title?

Don't like the idea... for a number of reasons... getting through borders is one of them.

Common for Salvage, Re-built, and MSO title status. Not common for no title. What borders are you crossing that have road blocks? Canada? I can't think of other states that would stop you to verify title status for anything on your trailer.

If you can get a bill of sale and verify the VIN was not reported stolen... then you should be fine for the track.

If you ever wanted to ride it on the street - then do a search on here about getting clean titles. You might decide it's not worth it.

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

Actually I have yet to see a trackbike without a title, clear or salvage. Dirt bikes on the other hand, a lot of folks don't have titles for them.

Once you verify the vehicle is not stolen and if the deal is good enough, it is not all that difficult to get a title in your name on the vehicle. All you need is a bill of sale and written affidavit from the previous owner/caretaker.

I have done it twice, once on my Dad's car and once on my cousin's F4i. Both owners passed away and no title was found. Filled out a few forms, wrote my own affadavit, had witnesses signed, wrote a two checks and 6 weeks later I received the title in the mail.
