i counted 7 "and"s in that run on sentance. wow.

he has to find the paperwork. finding the first owner will do nothing unless he has the title, in which without a receipt of the 2nd sale the bike would go to him. unless you had it registered, or on an insurance policy that listed the vin your out of luck until you find the paperwork.

It should not matter if he cant find the title, as long as it is actually titled in his name. The cops should be able to look up the vin and see a record of the title even if it has never been registered. I know this for a fact because I have been in the same situation. Had a quad stolen and the police found it 5 years later and were able to look up the vin and see that it was titled to me and I never had it registered.

As long as your brother did the customary title work when he bought it, any county/DMV clerk should be able to look it up. I've had lots of vehicles over the years and lost track of titles several times. A form and a fee were all I needed to get a duplicate title in each case.

Glad to hear it was recovered. Any chance he'll be able to prosecute the scumbag(s)?:lol:

ps. Punctuation is your friend :banana:
