You want to VERY careful buying a salvaged titled bike...
#1....sometimes the bike is crashed so bad as to damage the frame, i.e. so it's NOT straight..but the tech, will look at it, and say it's o.k...BUT a frame needs to be measurred, to be sure it's straight...which dealers Don't do..
#2...Check with your State's laws regarding "Salvaged Titles" as there could be either none allowed, or a very long waiting time to get it inspected.
#3...If your gonna buy a salvaged bike, especailly from a private party..have the bike Thouroghly checked out before completeing the transaction..have the lower fairinggs removed to check for damage.. sometimes, you can get lucky, and get a bike that was lowsided easily...often not...so beware...
