I'm trying to rebuild my 2005 r6 and I have found a guy with a frame. He has given me the vin number and the frame looks to be good. The problem is that it has been a track bike and there is no title with the bike. How do I figure out whether or not this frame is stollen or salvaged. Also if I do buy the frame how Do I go about getting a title and registration for it?

It's the same thing as buying any vehicle. The DMV always runs a check of the VIN to see if it's stolen. If it's salvaged, well that should show up on the title.

I bought my bike out of state, so I had to get it inspected first.

Does he have the title? Is it in his name? Does it say salvaged? These answers will go a long way to figuring out this situation.

Also might help people help you to know what state you are in. Some state's DMV websites have a VIN lookup tool that will tell you the registered owner and if it has been reported stolen or totaled or whatever.

The guy who has the frame says he has never had a title for it.
It might be stolen.

The only reason I know why it wouldn't have a title is if it was bought frame-only from the dealer. But I think they come with a blank or matching VIN and it should still have some sort of manufacturers certificate of origin? Not 100% sure on that though.
If it is was once a complete bike that was stripped down to the frame than the original title for the bike should have stayed with the frame.

And I am in Georgia. I'm just going to go up to the dmv tomorrow. Seems to be the easiest way to figure this all out.
Good idea.
