Need some help here guys. Went to purchase a used 2001 YZ 426F from a private party in NC this weekend. Apparently some bikes come with titles and some do not, depending on the state? Apparently in NC all you need is a bill of sale? I went to write the VIN # off the frame on the bill of sale and it was gone. Should I assume this bike is stolen? I canceled the sale and told the person I could not purchase the bike until I could verify whether or not the bike was stolen or not. I was able to take the # off the engine case which was still there. Any idea on which way to proceed from here. If the bike is not stolen I would like to purchase it. If it is stolen I want to report this to the police. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
