In MN you can get a ped registered with only a statement of facts form and 4 pics of said ped. "sell it" to someone here, have them register it and then sell it back to you with the plates and MN title. Then you should be able to get it registered in your state. Hypothetically of course! They do run vin in MN to be sure it is not hot. I would not bother trying to swap id plates, it may work cops don't care much about mopeds, at least not here, but if you get caught it will be a bad charge, not worth it for a moped! I did pull that shit with several vw bugs I had, but I recomend against it. My 2 cents worth! Best of luck!
