Here in Quebec you need a title. You'll find plenty of mopeds without and very few with. In the past things were pretty lax when it came to mopeds but know you need the right papers to get a license plate. For example if you buy a moped without a title they won't plate it for you. If you attempt to get ownership of a vehicle and it has a past example stolen you just lost your money. Papers here are king basically you could have a frame with papers and sell for a premium.
