I'm finished with all the big stuff on my winter project, so it's time to get the paperwork done on the Transalp so I can start working on it. I went by the DMV and got a copy of the current "Title established by surety bond" checklist. The first step is to get a certified VIN inspection. I had the Sheriff over today to do it, but he can't do one on a non-roadworthy (non-running) motorcycle. So essentially I can't get a title for this bike (salvaged title or regular) until after I'm done with the build. I really can't put this kind of effort into a bike that I don't own yet. I'll need to find another solution.
