slimvulcanrider I am pretty sure the last six diggets of my VIN are stamped on my engine. I will have to look again in the daylight to make sure as I could be wrong as to what those number are.

new rider 9984 there is no vin on the motor of a kawasaki vn 750 i have completely searched my motor and four others while they were off the bike just get a titled frame and get your knees in the breeze

now as for harleys the vin is on the frame everywhere and the same on the engine

OleDirtyDoc Good luck.one of my club brothers is in the same mess.as ling as no one will claim tbe bike as stolen(the motor still has a vin and can be considered stolen parts i would do the titled frame route .

paulbute the suggestions here are sound (well maybe not mine ) i think you should call his bluff with the authorities just to see how he reacts this will give you an indication how genuine he is.what we all have in common though is to be careful you dont want to be spending more cash to lose it all.. your choice mate like i said hope it goes in your favour

Spencer1 I'd have to agree with Vulcan 2000. Demand either the title or the money back.

At this point, the seller it trying to chase down all possibilities. At the worst case, we'll look into buying a titled frame, and switching the parts over to it. I've spoken with the DMV here, and was told unofficially that it's a vaild way to do it. The DMV doesn't care about the parts, only the title.
I wish you all the best of luck. If you honestly believe that they did not know that the bank was not officially on record as being paid and they did not know that they did not have the title to sign over that is your business. I myself am usually of the nature to believe everyone is honest until they prove me wrong. In this particular case I would be very cautious if I was in your shoes but that is me. Most people make sure they physically have the title to sign over when they first think of selling. I was not suggesting that you actually get a court judgment against them but rather suggest to them that you are going to seek a remedy from the authorities. If they are not telling the truth they would give you back your money quickly so they could not be prosecuted in any form. If they are the honest people as you believe they will do what ever is necessary to rectify the situation and complete the transaction fully. Again, I wish you all the best.

You do not have to threaten him but tell him you want to get this all sorted out and off both of your backs. Act as if you are doing it to help him out. Again, if he is knowingly in the wrong about the sale of the bike he will straighten it all out real quick.

If you decide to go the physical route be sure to ride the bike involved so if you are seen during your escape it will be traced back to the bike that he owns. lol

that being said if he refuses take said hammer break jaw for lying to you and hands for taking your hard earned cash.... simple!
Well, it's never simple. But, these guys don't have much money, and used the money to save themselves from being kicked out of their house.
