long story short i got a bike with a title but didnt realize the previous owner (a used car shop in NYC) never signed the title as a seller. they did sign it as a buyer when they got it from HD auction but never as a seller to the guy that i got it from (he never registered it prob for the same reason i cant).

now the shop in NYC is out of business. i am trying to do this the legal way. i know i can sign names etc, but i dont want to take any chances should anything come up in the future. the effed up part is that the bank i took a loan from for the bike signed off on it so they fdont even have an asset to back the loan as the last legal name on the title is the now defunct shop in NYC. they cant repo it if i default as the legal owner of the bike according to the title is the NYC shop. what a cluster.

any help is appreciated. the bike is a 2002 so its even tougher to reg than an old one. else i just keep it for 5 more years till it doesnt need a title. ugh.

Title is worthless. In NY you start from scratch have to own the bike and have a bill of sale over a year old. They run the #s and if its clear you can retitle with the proper forms and a copy or scribe of the vin# from the frame or motor. Of course your not in NY , ,maybe it will help.

Go to the state dept. of corporations web site, you will get all the info you need to track down the last owner of the car lot. As long as it wasn't a DBA it will tell you name, address & phone contact # under dept. of corporations. Then do a search of "other" business of the same owner & it will tell you if he has a new business. Floridas corp. department website is great for finding shit like this !!! Good luck.
Everything can be done!! Ya just have to know how to do it !!! If you have a hard time, Pm me, i can get a title on a toaster if it ain't stolen!!!

My 2cents is if he sold it to someone and got paid he don't give a shit! If he did not sighn one of the spots. But everything else is good just sighn the damn thing. what's he going to say I sold the thing have all this paperwork an I knowingly broke the law and tried to fuck offer everybody not signing as seller? He made mistake now fix it and move on. To much over thinking going on!
