What is a motorcycle bill of sale?
A bill of sale is just like a receipt: It’s proof that you were part of a consensual transaction. You’re assembling and signing a legal document that proves you’re selling your motorcycle to another person.
A bill of sale protects you and the buyer from any issues, should something come up, because you have a verified document clearly outlining the transaction, the condition of the motorcycle at the time of the sale, and the current ownership of the motorcycle too.

It’s pretty easy to create a proper bill of sale for your motorcycle — just follow the simple steps below. Start by checking your state’s rules and regulations about creating bills of sale. You might need to download a template from your DMV, or you might be able to create one on your own.
- Even if you’re not required to use your DMV’s bill-of-sale download, review and consider using it anyway. Alternately, research other examples so you can understand what information a proper bill-of-sale template should contain.
- Include necessary information like the buyer’s and seller’s contact information, names, and addresses. Also include the sale date, a description of the motorcycle, its condition at the time of sale, its serial numbers or VIN IDs, the sale amount, the payment type, and so on.
- Sign the document and have the buyer sign it as well.
