what year? do i realy need a title?

Nicola Visaggio /

So, I bought this bike of some guy in Virginia, I live in Philly, there was no title on the bike, as he salvaged it off a farm house job, he was cleaning. So, can anyone tell me how I find out what year this bike is (VIN #'S, ?) I'm pretty sure it's a bravo, from other pic's. If there's anyone in PA...Is a title necessary for a moped. I looked in Penn Dot, but i found no documents saying so.

Any help or information would be great, also I want to put directional lights (blinkers) on so if any one knows anything about that or where I may find good parts, send me a line.

Any one in Philly, want to tool around? Check out my bike pic.

Call BMV, varies from state to state.

Maine needs no title for like 125cc and under.

Title services are expensive-- you might do better selling it to a pal in a "no title" state and then buying it back and the "no title" state will then issue a title for use in the original location.

there are title companies that do this but a friend is better.

make out a bill of sale, have the "non title" guy register, insure and tag it (probably about 50 bucks) then immediately sell it back to you-- fill out the title request forms and you'll have a new one presto.

the companies do the same thing but are really $$$$!!

Oh, yeah, as per your title, yes, I don't know specifics but after an amount of years most states waive the titling.

contact bmv/dmv and tell them you need a title replacement.

but, I suggest you first ask your insurance company what the rules are in your state. let 'em know the make and year and they'll let you know, if you need a title, if your brand can be registered,etc.

its a good and FREE start. Christian Hanner
