    I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT I WOULD DO AFTER SPENDING ALMOST 2 YEARS RESTORING THIS 74 TX 650, BUT COLORADO HAD NO RECORD OF TITLE OR REGISTRATION. I HAD THE OLD PLATE [ expired june 1987]. THE NEVADA DMV TOLD ME I HAD TO DO A 50 STATE TITLE SEARCH WITH DOCUMENTS TO PROVE IT. BUT THANKS TO THIS FORUM I FOUND HOW TO LEGALLY REGISTER AND TITLE MY BIKE. THANKS FOR BEING HERE.
    NOW I JUST HAVE TO DO SOME MINOR REPAIRS AND TOUCH UP AND IT IS ALL GOOD.
    THE VERMONT REGISTRATION COST ME $ 93, WELL WORTH IT.
    THANKS AGAIN

    OK, fill us in on the details of how you got it done...

    If you got it from this forum, how about a link to where you got it from.

    Also, I think a friend did this, and yes, you get a plate, but I don't think you get a title. Not sure how that's going to work out when you want to sell...
     
  4. What exactly does Vermont Title have to do with your registration on NV? Are they actually in Vermont? What did they do for you?

    I did this for my XS. The details are here:

    Basically, you fill out their registration form (here), get the VIN verified by an official in your area (Vermont wants official letterhead, but what I did was stopped by the police station, the officer checked it out and printed it out on their own form and I attached his business card to the sheet), a bill of sale, and a check made out for the registration fee (I think 44 dollars) + 6% of the purchase cost (I think you're supposed to use the NADA value and I went with the fair price of $755) for a total of $89.30.

    Toss it all in an envelope, mail it up, and then wait 10 days (it took closer to 2 weeks for me) to get two separate packages; one with the license plate and one with the sticker/registration. From there, you can either ride on it with that plate, or take it to your state tag office and transfer it over.

    It DOESN'T provide a title though.

    Post 72 in that thread has the exact steps:
