Buying something with a lien on it?

Hey All! Just looking for some advice or some info about buying a vehicle/motorcycle with a lien on it.

Current Scenario:
I'm looking to buy a motorcycle from a friend of a friend. The guy owes $1800 on the motorcycle and is selling the bike for $2300. The bank (not sure if it is a local or corporate) is the lien holder. So this poses my question, what is the best way to go about this?

My current though processt:
1) Go to the bank with him, get a bill of sale notarized and a statement stating that he will hand over and sign the title over to me once he receives the title, (if it's not held on site which i don't think any are). Take possession of the bike and just store it until he receives the title.

Any input is greatly appreciated!
