I am a Missouri resident and I bought a motorcycle engine through eBay a year ago from a shop in Alabama. When they shipped the motor to me, the crate did not contain either a Title or Bill of Sale. I have tried contacting the seller but they will not return my emails. I have the eBay listing showing that I won the auction and purchased the motor, The paypal receipt showing that I paid for the motor and that the seller received the payment, as well as the shipping invoice from the seller shipping the motor to me. What can I do to get a title? Would there be a way around the seller with the proof of purchase that I have?
