Hello, How did you come in possession of the motorcycles and in what state do you think they were titled?
Expert:  SpecialistMichael replied 4 years ago.
To find the owner of this particular bike you must approach your local DMV with an appropriate reason to find the last know person titled to the vehicle.

DMV - Vehicle ownership is considered public record so requesting information is possible but beware you may be charged a fee, similar to other information requests from a DMV. There must be a reason, a impound yard, a creditor, if you are the owner or acting for the registered owner for example you will need a notarized statement. Lost title might be considered reasonable as well.

All of these laws may have slight variation depending on the state you are in but typically you need an appropriate reason to access the owner's information. There is sometimes a fee depending on the reason given.

I would recommend approaching the local DMV with the information on the bike you have, explaining your situation and mention to them you would like to title the bike.

As long as it is a good enough reason, there is a good chance the DMV should be able to title the bikes as if the title was "lost" similar to a car, with the same fees for a title, of course depending on the state.
