Ever titled a bike with no title?

I just bought a '74 Yamaha TT-250. (Pics to follow!)
Somewhere along the line, the title was lost and the guy I got it from never had it on the street.
DMV has been less than helpful.
But it was such a good deal that it was "buy now, worry about it later."

Any suggestions?

Wasn't that an OFF-Road only bike? if so, they didn't come with an MSO back then, just a regular Bill of Sale since you didn't have to get a tag for them.

If it was a Dual Sport then... I'm stumped but I would assume that with a Bill of Sale from the Owner would grant you a Duplicate tittle from the DMV, of course, being a Governemnt office, you can't expect for them to work for a living!

My mistake. It's a DT 250.
Street legal.

I've used these guys twice:

Since I'm a vintage guy I buy bikes all the time with no titles. Find a local (rural if possible) DMV office and ask them what it takes. Some states it's just a form, some states you trace the vin code, some states you take in to be looked at. Every state is different.

Or you can be lazy and use that service like I did.

Problems with the DMV. It is unheard of. They are the most efficient Government entity to date.

DT 250. My dad had a '79. I loved that bike, but I came home one weekend and it was gone. Sniff sniff. I wanted that bike. Got any pics?

In Missouri, they're even worse than a poorly managed government entity. They outsource to the public sector, but as I understand it, the contractor does not have any competition, so it's just godawful. Actually, the best DMV I've ever experienced was in Virginia. Don't know if they're all like the one in Fredericksburg, but they did it right.
  1. It was huge.
  2. They had an automated terminal outside that you could do most routine things
  3. You could also do most routine things on the web
  4. They had like 20 lines, about 75% were staffed all the time
  5. They had a couple employees that you had to go through to get a number. Those employees actually knew what they were doing, and you had to tell them what you were there for, and they would check your paperwork before giving you a number so you didn't end up waiting in line to be told you didn't have the right things.
One of the few examples where a government entity didn't suck. But it's freaking horrible in MO, the worst I've ever seen.

Thanks, JohnnyB.
I knew that there was something like that available, but I couldn't find it.
It's nice to know that you were satisfied with the service.

And with our DMV, it actually might be time/cost effective, not lazy, to go that route.
