Heres a odd one. my co-worker purchased a bike w/ a title. it is registered in georgia were we live for 2 years. she was contacted by the flordia police to inform here that she was in possession of stolen goods and they were contacting the local police to impund it. is this legal? what recourse does she have? Apperantly the title is forged it has changed hand 3 or 4 times since it was stolen apperantly. update Okay heres a little update. She will lose the bike it was stolen. The visible vin had been modifed, they had to remove the tank to look at the vin on the frame to confirm it was not the same. The new vin was an actual vin for a bike identical to hers located in austrailia. So thats how it was registered clean in georgia. Apperently they have caught a talker and he informed them of what they had done and what numbers they were using so they were able to track her bike down. Bad news for her, cause she lost her bike, bad news for the person getting it back because she jsut finished a cross country trip on it and has put 20k mile on it since she got it 3 years ago.
