15 years ago i used to buy several bikes from copart each year. always a good clean buying experience. there are 5 copart salvage sites within 60 miles of me. last month my best friend needed a 14r motor, so we reregistered new with copart as we found 2 14r's wrecked coming up for sale jan 8. both hit hard in front end. viewed pics which were accurate, but drove there sale morning to actually inspect bikes ourselves which they allow if registered. net site says auction ends 5 pm on sale day. verified this also at auction office. were asked if wanted to place bid while there, declined that as we intended to be high bidders at 5 that afternoon. current high bid was $275 on a 12 model, 725 on 14 year model. came home and opened bid site at 2 oclock, neither bike still listed. called to find out they started accepting bids that morning and closing out bids. both bikes sold, done deal. disappointed as 6k worth of undamaged engines sold for a grand plus fees. parts only bikes so no titles available. st listing are salvage titles which u are given, subject to ur states regulations to make roadworthy. not a bad experience, good learning expereienc as now know how bid process works. still rate them a good seller. call, they will explain all fees as a individual, ur state has fees and rules listed on net to put a st bike back on road. ga has several inspection sites where simple $200 fee can get u back on road, but title remains branded salvage title forever. no documented parts/labor bill required, only tires, brakes, signals, horn, no fi codes,everything working to pass inspection. we're building strip only 14r, can tell u project gonna originate at copart.
