Re: Liens, Encumbrances, Clear Title
I've also bought bikes where the seller had the title, but it still showed a lien. This was accompanied by a letter from the bank (lien-holder) releasing their interest in the bike.
This works, too, and is also a big deal to US Customs when exporting. They get three days (the required 72-hour wait) to confirm this with the bank/lien-holder.
Bummer about the recall letter.
