Sec.451 of the CrPC deals with recovery of property stolen, received or is being used as evidence in a case during the enquiry or for which the trial is pending or the trial has not been concluded. You can under this section acquire the custody and possession of the vehicle through the provision of Superdari, which is based on the surety bond. Surety may be cash or papers giving title to the property, thus the RC of your motorcycles may be taken as surety. The discretion to determine the amount that may be taken as surety whether in terms of cash or in your case the RC is dependent on the court, usually the court may ask for the surety equivalent to the market value of the vehicle which in this case is Rs. 1 lakh as stated by you but if it may deems fit it may allow a smaller portion as surety.
