Title Questions:

What does "Clean Title" mean?
Clean titles are just that, clean of any adverse brands. In Wisconsin, these bikes may be titled and registered for road use immediately after purchase. Some bikes with clean titles do have damage that will need to be repaired before they will be street legal; however, no inspection is required.

What does "Insurance Claim Paid Title" mean?
These bikes have titles that are branded stating that an insurance claim was paid on this vehicle. These are NOT salvage titles. These vehicles have NOT been salvaged and have NOT been totaled. In Wisconsin, these bikes may be titled and registered for road use immediately after purchase. Some bikes with these titles do have damage that will need to be repaired before they will be street legal; however, no inspection is required.
Many states do not have this type of title classification and issue a normal clean title instead.

What does "Salvage Title" mean?
These bikes have been damaged and salvaged (not totaled) by the insurance company. Please note that just because a vehicle has a salvage title, does NOT necessarily mean that it has frame or engine damage. In Wisconsin, these bikes may be titled immediately after purchase, but they can not be registered for road use (license plates) until they pass an authorized safety inspection. In Wisconsin these inspections are done by the State Patrol and some county Sheriffs. There is an $80.00 fee for a Wisconsin inspection. Once a salvage vehicle has passed the required safety inspection, it is street legal and can be registered for road use. In Wisconsin the new title will be branded "Rebuilt Salvage".

What does "Previously Salvaged Vehicle that has Passed Inspection" mean?
These bikes were damaged and salvaged (not totaled) by the insurance company. Please note that just because a vehicle had a salvage title, does NOT necessarily mean that it had frame or engine damage. These bikes were repaired and have passed a Wisconsin safety inspection. They are now street legal. In Wisconsin, these bikes may be titled and registered for road use immediately after purchase. These titles have the brand "Rebuilt Salvage" on them.

What does "Sold with Bill of Sale - NO WISCONSIN TITLE WILL BE ISSUED" mean?
A bike that is sold with a Bill of Sale can mean two things.
The first and most common reason is for bikes that were damaged and totaled by the insurance company. The titles were marked as junk and surrendered to the Motor Vehicle Department. Please note that just because a vehicle has been totaled, does NOT necessarily mean that it has frame or engine damage. In Wisconsin, these bikes can NOT be titled or registered for road use. Many people use these cycles for parts, race track bikes or power plants for custom ATV's or dune buggies. Some states do have programs for home built or rebuilt vehicles that these bikes MAY qualify for. We can not tell you if your state has such a program. In order to find out, you will need to contact your state's Motor Vehicle Department.
The second reason that a bike may be sold with a Bill of Sale is if the title has been lost or destroyed. Unless you are the registered owner of the bike, you can not apply for a replacement title in Wisconsin. Some customers have told us that they were able to obtain a bonded title/registration for vehicles with lost or destroyed titles; however, there is no guarantee. Please contact your Motor Vehicle Department for the availability and procedures in your state.

Please note that vehicle procedures vary from state to state. If you have any questions about how your state handles a certain type of title situation, you should contact your Motor Vehicle Department.
