Bought my moped of craigslist but the vin on title is missi

Hi.

I bought it from a guy named X in oregon, he bought it from a guy named Y in washington. X didn't register it in oregon. X gave me bill of sale and the washington title which both signed by Y and x signed me a bill of sale also.

Then after I bought it, I found out that in the title there is one number missing and another mistake where they typed 8 instead of B. It is very hard to see the vin on the moped. Its is a 14 years old moped if it matters.

I live in oregon. Any thoughts on how to fix this or where to start? I mean when I go for vin inspection and it comes out not matching what do I expect from the dmv? No plates on the 100cc moped and washington title says it was previously registered in oregon. I ran a vin check and it is clean no accident and is not stolen. I have no access contact to x or y.

Thanks.

They likely will offer little recourse other than getting in contact with the previous listed owner whom will need to have the title amended then transfered to you. At this point I would investigate either applying for a new title (which could be difficult depending on your state laws) or seeing if you can register it in Vermont.

100cc's? Then it's not a moped. All mopeds are 50cc's. Anything over is legally a motorcycle.

As for titleing I would do the vermont trick. But I highly suspect that what you have is a scooter, not a moped.

If it doesn't have pedals like a bicycle and a two stroke engine you are on the wrong forum.

If I'm not mistaken, the untitled bike must be at least 15 years or older to get a VT registration.
