In my latest Questionable Choice™ I picked up a '1990 Puch Maxi' which turned out to be a 1980 Tomos A35. It runs better than it looks, starts on the first kick every time, but I cannot find a VIN anywhere and I didn't bother to get a title or transferable registration. I live pretty far out in the Boroughs of NYC so I could probably get away with riding dirty and not getting papers, but I'd rather not tempt the wrath of the NYPD.
I know of the Vermont method of getting the thing titled but I am not sure what to do with having no VIN. I love to ride this so I would rather not sell it if I didn't have to, any tips?
