DMV...it would be a salvage title which will kill the resell value of the bike....could try and get a lost title instead, some states offer this instead of the salvage title

You bought a used car and when you tried to trade it in they said it has a salvage title six months after you bought the car?

That means that at some point the car was wrecked so severely that the cost to repair it exceeded 75% of the value of the car. The car was therefore totaled and sold to a salvage yard. The salvage yard sold the car to someone who repaired it and sold it with the required salvage title. You should have noticed the salvage title when you bought the car.

If you buy a salvage vehicle with no title and repair it how do you get a title?

What to do or should know when your auto insurance salvages a vehicle?

In the U.S., Auto Insurance companies do not salvage a vehicle. If the vehicle claim is paid out as a total loss it is sold or auctioned off to a salvage or a junk yard. The junk yard may crush the vehicle for scrap metal value or salvage parts from the vehicle or even to re-title the car on a salvage title but this is totally up to the salvage yard or whomever the yard then re-sells the vehicle too.

If a salvage yard owns a car is the title considered salvage?

Depends on the existing title, if the salvage company owns the vehicle and it does not have a salvage title then they would be just another owner like anyone else and this vehicle would have a clean title assuming that there are no lean holders. On the other hand if the vehicle in question has already received a salvage/non repairable or similar title then salvage/non repairable or similar title would follow the vehicle not a clean title.
