smooshed Pani just went for 7500 and there are a couple other ones up. Just stay away from the 999 in Columbus, OH. That one is going to me. :D

Read into Copart's policy. They have hidden fees and even if you win an auction and the price doesn't meet their minimum they don't have t sell you the bike. I've only tried to work with them with cars, perhaps bikes are different.

i bought my 1100evo from copart with the intention of rebuilding it back to street worthiness. Then later doing something a little custom with it. As was mentioned before there are tons of fees. And didnt listings have different requires; i.e. pure sale, minimum bid, or on approval.

My company buys alot of bikes from copart and other auctions. You do have to be a dealer with licenses. We have to have several and state issued bid cards. There are fees that go along with winning a bid. I personally have purchased 3 bikes and a cobra from there and have had no superises. I got what I expected a salvage title bike or car. You also have to be a dealer or know a dealer to get the title rebuilt. There are forms you need to send into your state to get it inspected and once it is passed you get a sellable title. My race bike an 04 gsxr 600 was bought for less than 1k and needed only a windshield. So you can get great bikes for cheap. You just can't do it without licenses. If you guys want more info p.m. Me and I'll fill you in

some places do require licenses, but copart doesnt unless it is a state requirement. And as far as dealing with registering an insurance for road bikes, you will have to read up on your states rules.

this is so confusing!



on another note...how long do we have to wait for preview auctions to go live??
Simple - you DO NOT have to be a dealer to bid.

Re: Live feed. Go check out Copart's site for instructions.

In California at least, you do not need to be a dealer or have any license to re-title a salvaged bike. You do have to pass inspections and DMV checks the engine and frame numbers to make sure nothing is stolen, but that's about it. You will never get a clean title on the bike, though. It will always say "salvage" on it. I'm still getting ready for the inspections on my 996 before getting a new title.

I am interested in certain bikes located in VA under crashedtoys's inventory. Unfortunately, their FAQ states that I am unable to bid due to restrictions imposed by the state. I am unable to find a broker who is willing to act as proxy too.

Have you bought anything through crashedtoys?
