With over 6 years of experience in the Insurance industry I can confidently say that "branding" titles is a great system for insurance companies to avoid paying for a vehicle twice and has little to do with consumer safety.
Then make sure that you document everything well so the buyer knows that you are not some shade tree mechanic who cobbled it together to make a quick buck. Lots of pics, receipt for parts that were changed, a frame/fork/triple inspection protocol (this is what most people will be concerned about with a crashed bike), etc will go a long way.
