I am looking at buying a 250f from a person who lives in my area. I live in Maryalnd, he lives in Virginia. The only worry I have is that the guy claims to have lost the title. He said he will give me a bill of sale. I have asked for pics of the VIN on the frame, and asked him to tell me the VIN. The absence of a VIN on the frame would be an obvious sign that it was stolen. Once I get the VIN is there anything I can do to check the history of the bike? I would like, if possible, a simple sight I can punch the VIN in. If not, what do I do at the MVA. I don't want to support stolen bikes or get screwed over in buying one, what are my options?
