My question involves vehicle registration or title in the state of: AL.
I had a custom motorcycle i built, and found a truck I liked on craigslist. I contacted the guy and he wanted to trade. We did the trade I asked if he has the title he told me yes. I signed my bill of sale and title and handed it to him he handed me a bill of sale, told me he would bring the title to me at work the next day. ( i know i never should have left without it) That was 8 months ago and he will not answer his phone or reply to a text message. Now I know I can sue him, the motorcycle is already gone so I cant get it back. I have the original post that i made showing i wanted $4500 for the motorcycle. I would think I could sue for $4500 or the title to the truck that I am sure he does not have. On the bill of sale he wrote me he put the purchase price at $100 told me that way the tag would be cheaper, I did not argue I just wanted the truck. So now I am worried that if I do sue, the judge will tell me that the bill of sale is only $100 and thats all im getting and I will have to return the truck. Anyone have any opinions? Advice? Please help.
