Need to know what kind of bike i bought the serial number is SNFS09G41987

Absolutely no way to ID a bike by serial number alone. The brand of bike is on the head tube (where the fork goes through the frame) and the model is on a decal on the frame. If those are missing it DOES NOT MATTER what the bike is, and it's possible it is stolen. Parts are universal and a (cheaply) repainted bike has little value.

I’m happy to help further over the phone at

Looking for the make of a frame with this serial number U485606471 or U4356064171

Locating your bike's serial number. The majority of serial numbers are located under the bottom bracket where the two pedal cranks meet. Simply turn your bike upside down and record the number. If there is no serial number there then check places like the headset at the front of the bike or the rear stays.

Where is the serial number on a Yamaha Breeze?

The bike might be stolen and it could have been grinded off. Either that or it is somewhere else you aren't looking. Check the engine block.

Can I find the model with the serial number

Serial numbers are stamped into the frame. It could be in several places, like under the crank, on the rear part of the frame on even on the front tube. It may also have been ground off, as with a stolen bike. Give the bike a once over carefully, if you don't find it, don't worry just ride it or go to a autobody shop, they have the stamps to make up your own.

How do i get a new title?? the old one was lost by the former owner

Depending on the state you live in, this may become a real pain. It would be advisable to have the former owner to apply for the replacement title in his name and sign ownership over to you. If that's not possible,apply for a replacement title using the vin# on the steering stem of the bike, which is the frame below the handle bars. If your DMV asks for the engine # as well, Yamaha uses the same number for both. It is located under the clutch side of the motor(right side) towards the bottom. Sometimes you'll have to have a sherriff or other law enforcement come to verify those numbers and sign the form as well. Then, normally the DMV then checks the database of stolen vehicles, and if your numbers don't show up you'll get your title.
In my state, they'll still sell you a plate and stickers so you can operate it while you're waiting for the title. We have to carry copies of the paperwork to prove the title is pending. Good luck!

Bought a 4 wheeler from a friend. Zeb Baker. HE bought it from dealer in Gainesville TX. It was stolen and I need the VIN #. but can't locate title. Can you do a search and find the vin? 660 Rapture.

There are 2 main locations where the nomenclature plate is located on all motorcycle type vehicles.
Main location; on the front of the frame between the front forks.
Secondary location; on the frame under the seat.
If your plate is missing from both locations you may be able to obtain the VIN# by using the frame number ( stamped into frame,usually next to motor) and engine serial number ( stamped into engine on bottom side. Failing these measures, your friend will need to go to the DMV and do a registration search for all vehicles registered in his name - you'll also need the approximate date of first registration to assist the DMV in locating the proper vehicle.
Hope this helps!

Replacement frame for 2000 fxst

You may be able to get a replacement frame through a dealer or you could order an aftermarket frame from somewhere like V-Twin or Custom Chrome. The problem is the serial number. Since Harleys are so often stolen and the parts swapped, the factory and the law enforcement agencies have a lot to do with frames and frame numbers. If you change frames, the serial number will not match the engine and depending on how your state registers vehicles, you may have to re-register the bike. To do this you will need a "Certificate of Origin" with the new frame. I'd check with your local DMV to see what is involved.

Good Luck

Can i get a frame with a title and register my bike under that frame and title with out rebuilding it?

You can do whatever you want so long as you don't get caught and convicted for falsifying state documents. Put your motor in the legal frame then register the bike with the new frame number and the current engine number.

Buying bike with no title. if it has a lein can i get a dif. fram

First, run the serial number by the cops, they can tell you if it is stolen or not, they should then be able to give you the name of the registered owner, who you would need to contact to get the title papers replaced. then do a lein search. It may cost a few bucks but is cheaper then stripping it down and rebuilding,Second, the frame and the engine are both numbered, it would be good to check both.

Hope this is of some help.
