I have found a bike that is offered as a 'parts bike' The owner has no ownership but will give me a bill of sale.

Does anyone know what the deal is in Ontario if I wanted to put this bike on the road??

Thanks!!

I went through a similar issue in the past with a CJ2 willy's, I had to go to a Justice of the Peace & get a sworn statement that the original ownership had been lost & there was no record of the serial # with MTO. I was then given a new ownership & plates. MTO would be your best bet for directions. Good Luck. :waving:

How about having a policeofficer run the vin number before making any purchase . Make sure no hits come back on the frame.(stolen' salvaged , etc).



I would do that even for a parts bike. You may even be able to find out last person bike was registered to. It wouldnt be crazy to send a letter including your phonenumber to the last registeered person.

besides that Im not sure of the local laws pertaining re titling a bike. In my comunist stae of New jersey is almost impossible.

Good luck.

If you can get the VIN you could casually ask at a licence office if they have listed owner. Or pay the $25fora used vehical package. Gives any leins and the previous owners.

I did a few of those deals when I lived in "Onterrible". I had to give a written decloration that stated the words "I am the legal & rightfull owner of this vehicle" in the explination of how I got it & a request for a new regristration to be issued. It normally took 30 days for the bureau to trace the path of the registration to confirm that the title was clear.

Good luck!

In Massachusetts, no title / active registration, no dice
Actually, that's not entirely true. I bought a non-titled GL1000 in New Hampshire last year. With the NH registration & a bill of sale, I titled it in MA. No problems-- I was amazed!
