In the case of buying old motorcycles, the Bill of Sale becomes even more important.

A lot of great project motorcycles you’ll find have been sitting in a barn or a garage for many years – sometimes decades!

Here are some common scenarios you’ll find when buying old bikes:

  • The previous owner has passed away and the estate has no clue where ownership papers could be.
  • The title and registration was lost long ago and never replaced.
  • The bike was never registered in the first place.
  • The bike was abandoned or acquired at auction.

In all of these scenarios, the Bill of Sale is the ONLY document you’ll have to demonstrate a statement of facts and a chain of ownership.

If the motorcycle you’re buying doesn’t have a title, be sure to get a Bill of Sale.

Whatever the case, always get a Bill of Sale in a private vehicle transaction.

Some states allow you to use this to register and title the bike in your name.

If you find that your state DMV is making the process difficult or impossible, you can look to a state like Vermont, where you can mail in the application and use the Bill of Sale as proof of ownership is the bike is old enough (15 years).
