I did a salvage bike once, 2001 FXDX. Came out beautifully. Problem was, I had no title whatsoever, just a bill of sale from the salvage company. I asked at the DMV before I bought it, and they said it was easy to get a salvage title. When I went to get one, not so much. Basically told me whoever I talked to initially was wrong.
Took almost a year to eventually get a title. Lots of certified mail, huge pain in the ass. Good news was I ended up with a clear title, not a salvage title. Lesson learned, I'll never do that again...
I hate that motorcycle they make me ride. I'm here to tell you there ain't nothing in the world I hate worse than that elephant under my ass.
