Oooo yup, that 5hp on the vin tag is the problem. I got mine titled with only an IN bill of sale, but they wanted to see proof that my ped was not rated for more than 2hp. Had to direct the lady to the Murray manual on line and show her that the bike is rated at 2hp max, then no prob. I wasn't aware that any peds were factory produced with more than 2hp. Anyway, good luck!
