I got my scooter very cheap from a seller who assured me it wasn't stolen he just didn't have paperwork. It has the original microchip key so stolen seems very unlikely. I have the Vin and the license plate with current registration but nothing else. Any recommendations on how to find the previous owner using this information? I'm hoping to contact them and offer them some money for helping me get the title. Is the dmv the only option for this or is there a 3rd party company/service that could have this info. I've tried googling but seem to find scam sites only.
A bonded title may be an option down the road but I'd prefer to start by trying to contact the previous owner.
