Anybody ever bought a bike without a title. I am looking into an 82 Yamaha XJ650 Maxim for my buddy. The deal is, the guys selling the bike loaned a guy 600 bucks and as collateral held his motorcycle. This was four years ago and the guy who borrowed the money has not been heard from. So now the guy selling wants to get rid of this bike (he own a large horse ranch and it just takes up room in his pole barn) but he has no title. We are a bit perplexed because this is a real nice bike and a real good deal as far as only paying 500 bucks for it. Let me know if anyone knows anything.
