History in US

PostAuthor: Preben59 » Mon Nov 13, 2017 1:37 pm

Hi
I have just bought a xv1000 1985 in Denmark. All I can get from the previous owner is, that it was imported from US 10 years ago. I have request and payed for a Auto Auction Report from a US website, but there where no usefull informations in it.
Can anyone help me finding some historic informations from it’s time i US? especially dates of owner shift and reading of odometer.

Regards
Preben, Denmark

Howdy. Welcome to VTF.

that will be difficult because we have 50 different Dept of Motor Vehicles a.k.a. DMV, each state has its' own rules.

if you know the state it was 1st "titled" in, you could approach them for info. [probably on-line]

many require that certain things be revealed for title - crash, salvage, flood, etc.
