    Find a friend or relative that lives in Maine or Vermont. Super easy for anything 15 years old or more. Bill of sale and proof of insurance and zap, you are on the road.

    Maybe Evil should start a sideline business registering bikes for guys. Wasn't there a guy, Diesel, from Portland Maine that had a few posts offering to do this?

    ok guys ,heres a funny thing! the dmv cant find it in their system ,but the bike was inspected as recently as april of 92 (the sticker is still on the fork tube). my guy ran the numbers on the "hot list" and it didnt get a hit there either. then a little birdie proceeded to tell me that for the bike being as old as it is or even how long ago it was inspected,that i would be better off to just buy a title from a destroyed bike and file it as such . and then proceded to direct me to another individual that ,after i made a call to them just happen to have a few titles to several early cb's and has a back yard sitting full of junked bikes. and since im gonna tear this thing down to the bare frame and come back up ,that seems to be the most cost efficent ,time and money wise thing to do! atleast according to the little birdie!! Oh and geeto good guess on the price ! you were within $50 of what i paid for the thing(i paid $100) AND it had a new battery in it!! the battery by its self is worth $60

    What about Title services that "buy" your bike and get it registered in a non title state and then "sell" the bike back to you so you can get it tiled in your state.

    I've not heard of that before,but that would definitely have been an option for me. Well I ended up getting a title for an 80 model cb from that guy thankfully! So now I can begin tearing this little piece of hell apart,yes I know its only a 400. BUT it'll be fun to cut ,hack and weld on something that I really don't have any real money in, I'm a decent welder ,and fabricater and this as I said earlier is my first endeavor into caferacers (yes I know you can't really count a cb400 as a legitamite racer) but it'll still be fun to poke around on it and I can ride back roads all the way to work. If this goes ok then id like to find a late 70's real early 80's suzuki and do it again only this time ,start with a few more cc's. Thanks to everyone for the responses ,have a good week guy's!

    He found "THE" title or "A" title? I wouldn't mess around with VIN swaps. In the future (for those stupid enough to find themselves in the same situation yet wise enough to use the search function) then your two options are to pay a title service hundreds of dollars and wait months for a title to arrive in the mail or call NC DMV License & Theft Bureau at (919) 861-3141, tell them you have acquired an abandoned vehicle that you'd like to register and follow their instructions to the letter.

    he found a title to a cb400t,the same thing as mine nothing much left to it but a somewhat rusty frame, A(1)fork ,the hub of the rear wheel, and a few misc brackets, so i was considering just keeping my current frame and starting to cut that one, that way i have a correctly vined frame.

    I know you mean well, but that's a sure path to jail if the man thinks you are VIN tampering. And after all that you may end up with a Salvage title.

    If the replacement frame has a title that checks out as OK, then you could transfer that to your name and rebuild that "bike" with your "spare parts". But you want top know that the title is clean. That has been done before now and I think it's kosher.

    If the hulk has been in the junk yard for long enough, it may have dropped out of the system and come up clean from the DMV.

    since you are dealing with a bike that is neither special nor rare why not just find a bike with papers......
