Wish that deal was close to me. I would buy it as a second bike just to have it for friends to ride.

Thank SkiPro3, the member driven away from this forum by hate mail sent to his PM.
He sent me this info and I thought that was rather decent of the guy.
Thanks SkiPro.
P.S. It is not his bike for sale.

Could not buyer hypothetically register it in Vermont as I have read possible here on forum? Thus theoretically avoiding back fees assessed by California?

Do you mean register it in Vermont and then register it in Calif? Sounds good on the surface and might even be doable but I bet it won't go smoothly.

I found this interesting;

CA cars that are removed from California do not have to pay CA DMV fees. The one caveat to this is if the car returns to CA, the DMV will try to collect the fees, even some years down the road.

There is no "Title being held hostage" issue when fees are due. You may take the unit to your home state and sell it there with no impact from California. The only impairment to the title is that the transfer & registration in California of the effected unit will cause the back fees to become due.

Good explanation Blueduce, thanks. I had been under possibly false impression that California would not release clear title status if attempt was made in another state.

Your welcome Fred; that answer was in regards to a question on a Mecum auto auction. Apparently it's not uncommon for some of these " great deals " we see cross the block to have unpaid registration fees in Calif. That would make sense to me now, when you see a newly restored hoopty w/ fresh paint and no miles on a resto-mod go for what you think is a great deal. But what a pisser if you lived in Calif.....

How are these back fees determined on a bike such as this that sells for $1,000?

Here in NY the 1,000 bike would cost me $80 in taxes plus registration and plate fees, probably a total of $120.
