Default can I find previous owner with VIn#???

I bought a ATV and the guy told me he just had a bill of sell, and he cant find the previous owner ,to get the title, I honestly think he is telling the truth and dont think it is stolen, since I picked it up from his house and he has kept in constant contact with me over the phone and e-mail trying to find him. is there a way to get the title for it??

In my experience a lot of used atvs and dirt bikes don't have the titles anymore just bill of sales.

why do you need a tittle to go to Canada or Mexico anyways?
as long you have a bill of sale with you i think you are alright...
if anything i would call the boarded people and just ask what are the thing you need to do to ride in a diff country...

I'm not sure what would be required for crossing the boarder with it as I've never tried to do that. I called the DMV and asked once about getting a title for the dirt bike I was at the time considering making street legal and she asked if it had ever been titled. I told her I really didn't know that I bought it used and didn't have a title. Well, she told me to come on down to the DMV and pay $20 or something and they would issue me a new title. I don't know if she knew what she was talking about.


Do all ATV's and dirt bikes come new with titles? The only dirt bike I think I've seen with a title is my uncles Husqvarna had one that he bought new but none of the ones I've delt with and I'm not sure that his he has now have titles. Just bill of sales. I don't think it's at all uncommon to not get the title to it.
