There are many different places to find salvage title motorcycles for sale, including numerous online classified and auction websites. Some auction websites that offer salvage motorcycles for sale include eBay, CrashedToys.com, SalvageBid.com and AutoBidMaster.com.

On these websites, prospective buyers can browse through all of the various salvage motorcycles being offered, or to search for a specific motorcycle based on the make, model, year of manufacture and the proximity of the seller to the prospective buyer.

A salvage motorcycle or vehicle is one that has been given a salvage title, which means that the vehicle has sustained enough serious damage for the insurance company to write it off as a total loss. This generally occurs when the cost to repair the damage exceeds the total value of the vehicle. When buying a salvage vehicle, it is important to note that it cannot be registered or driven until it has been fully rebuilt and inspected to ensure that the damage has been fixed. Each state has different rules and regulations regarding salvage vehicles, so it is important to check the local regulations before purchasing a salvage motorcycle.

As a salvage motorcycle has suffered significant damage, the Department of Motor Vehicles recommends that all potential buyers have the salvage vehicle fully inspected before making a purchase.
