Bought a bike no keys, no title, ignition cant find that either. Its fast as hell though. So ive heard, How do i get it started? Help me please……

Sorry to tell you Stew, chances are you bought a stolen bike. So there are two things you need to do. The first is get the title squared away and try to get your money back from the guy who sold it to you before he spends it on crack and Xbox games. Take the VIN to DMV and have them run it for you. Then fill out the form for a duplicate title. The second thing is to get the ignition re-keyed. Order another ignition and install it.

  1. Stew,

    You’re a putz1 How could a red flag not pop up in your head that the bike could have been stolen. You give new meaning to “ride it like you stole it”

    Regardless, safe rides and shiney side up.

  3. This has got to be a joke, the guy is basically saying he bought a stolen bike. It makes me mad since I has a bike stolen from me a few years back.

  6. Me and my dad both have bought numerous bikes without titles that where not stolen. Although it would not have hurt to request the vin and check with the dmv before buying it.
