Stolen? No, it doesn't. But no title means it might be, or the title might not be clear, or it might not be his to sell...a missing title can be easily replaced by the legitimate owner, so stating it's missing and not applying for a new one is a (huge) red flag. There are so many bikes available. Find one that has the correct paperwork and, if possible, one that doesn't need work. Something sitting for that long is going to need work once you start riding it.Why? Does that definitely mean that it was stolen? He posted the VIN also
Run away as fast as you can AND Don't look back a bike with out a title is more often than not a HUGE money pit filled with nothin but regret and sorrow. AND trying to obtain a title is very expensive and takes months to get. Lived that nightmare never again.Once upon a time in my younger years, I bought a car with a screwed up title. I think I knew better but I really wanted that car. I drove it for a short time but every time I saw a cop, I just knew he was going to stop me and I would get all kinds of tickets for not properly licensing the darn thing.
I ended up selling the thing real cheap to a guy that gutted it out and made a dirt track stock car out of it.
