What would you like to do?
If it's got the same license plate as when that owner had it, you can contact the DMV or your local police department so they can run it and tell you the registered owner. It's public record, so it shouldn't be a problem.

How do I obtain a title to a motorcycle if the title has a bank lien and the motorcycle was sold for parts and previous owner still owes money?
Answer You can't. The bank still owns the bike, NOT you. The bike was sold to you illegally if the bank wasn't paid off. You need to get your money back. No…t quite true. He can legally sell you the bike but it becomes "interesting" depending on the terms and conditions of the loan and your state. For example you want to be careful since you might end up being RESPONSIBLE for the remainder of his loan :-) This is unlikely however since to be owner you have to transfer the title and you can not do that as long as there is a lien on the bike. a lien does not mean the bank owns the bike the seller owns it. The lien means the bank has a financial interest in the bike. "part" ownership if you will. If you really want the bike I would contact the lien holder. This might be as simple as the bike was "totaled" out by insurance and they simply forgot to remove the lien on the original title or they may "sell" you the salvage title. Call them and see if you can get someone on the phone. I would prefer to do all this BEFORE paying any money for it :-) You can use all the parts except the Frame and Engine Casing as they both have VIN numbers and you need a title for BOTH if they do not match. Good Luck
How do get a title for a motorcycle that you have a bill of sale for which was written by a person who was not the owner because the owner is dead?

How do you get a title for an abandoned motorcycle in Massachusetts it was left on my property and i can't get in contact with the owner?
I would say right up front MA is a pain to do abandon titles there are procedure in place that if you do all the steps you still may not get the title.all tiles are transferab…le from one state to another. In Ma it is according to the year of the bike as to what procedure to use. There are states that will title for out of starters with a notarized Bill of sale or statement of fact, the bike needs to be 1992 or below. You need to contact a Statutory agent in the representing state. Best way is to use a vehicle title service for this. one that is a agent of the state is best, WWW.GetNewtitle.com is the one I work for . If the bike is 1993 or newer there are other states that will title the vehicle in your name with either a bond or a VIN verification form. Getnewtitle does these also. If you chose to go thru the abandon procedure in Ma there are specific kinds of abandon forms. abandon on Private property, abandon at Repair shop. Police tow. Each has it own process of public advertising and vehicle VIN check in a certain number of states. It might be a good idea to go to the locale police and have them run a NCIC check. In Ma you may do evry thing right and still not get the title.
You can find all of that information on the Department Of Motor Vehicle's website or at their offices depending on your location.
How do you get a title for a motorcycle you buy from an owner who never got the title when they bought it?
You have to get it from the owner that last had the title in his name.
Don't pay him until the title is in your hands. Also, make sure your bill of sale mentions that YOU don't get the loan, and that it is still his responsibility.
i would do a search on the title, there are some online websites in which you pay and they will look up information. If that is not an option then you could see who the serial… number was first registered to.
If you buy a motorcycle with no title and the seller is not the original owner how do you get a title?
Certificate of Dishonor effectively used for Declaratory Judgement to perfect the involuntary transfer of a motor vehicle title I was battling a quiet title controvers…y over a Dodge truck. Facts: Out of state truck contracted / sold to me by an un-notarized contract. The owner failed to deliver the title and the truck is here in Florida from Arkansas. The Florida DMV will/would not entertain any transfer of title given there is no bill of sale and no title. The un-notarized contract was understandably insufficient. The truck was registered, expired, in another State other than Florida; and when I contacted the DMV in the other State, they would not provide any information or services unless I went to the out-of-state DMV in person. The due diligence affidavit, that accompanied the civil action, was suggested to have me hire a PI, somehow get the sellers utility company to give out information on the seller, and a whole host of other impossible things requiring travel out-of-state, travel expenses, time, money, lodging, risk; all given the fact that the seller resides out-of-state The only evidence I produced was the Certificate of Dishonor which took 20-days and the cost of a notary (no PI, or interstate travel, etc). I think I have stressed the fact that the controversy was interstate .... Resolution: 1. I created the Letter Rogatory supported by an Affidavit in Negative Averment. 2. I petitioned a notary by affidavit to begin a protest. 3. The notary sent the Notice of Dishonor (with presentment attached) via certified return receipt; 4. Then the notary sent the Notice of Protest 1-page notice via delivery confirmation; 5. Then awarded the stipulations in the Letter Rogatory to me with copies sent to the seller. 6. I opened a civil case with 2 attachments attached; one being an Affidavit of Due Diligence with the evidence of due diligence being the Certificate of Dishonor and the second being an Affidavit for Title. 7. One week later the court delivered the Declaratory Judgment. 8. The truck is now titled and registered to me. For the mailings of notices, I had the notary use a US Postal product. It is always helpful to have someone witness all documentation sent, so there are 2 persons' signatures (other than your own) on the record - a la "out of the mouth of 2 or 3 comes the truth", with the sender / notary writing a certificate of content/service describing the contents of the envelope(s).
