Hi,

I live in MA and just last week picked up a 1980 Puch Magnum II for $60. It was missing some covers and is a bit beat up(tank dented, rusty) but i got it running in two days so I am happy with it. The guy i got it from had got it for free with a flawless motobcaine he bought from a guy in NH for $200.00 a few years back. The Puch has its lock cylinder intact and unlocked (with no key of course) and the vin plate is still attached. The last registration sticker is a MA one from 1984.

So for all those who have mopeds registered here in MA:

Does the DMV run the vin?

What would happen if it came up as stolen back in 1984?

IS there a way to see if it is stole before going to the dmv?

Here we only need a bill of sale to register these and titles where never issued. I just don't want to deal with the DMV if it was.

Thanks for any info
