I'll keep you in mind. I am not going to plate either of mine, just use my plate off a real bike. Unless I get a wild hair this winter and send in the paperwork on them.

I thought the same thing. If the bonded title doesn't go then I may do that as well. We shall see. Post up some pics of your CT

How much trouble can you get in riding a moped to work on side streets anyway??

Carb, seat and other misc parts in in a box. All I have so far for pics.

Hey, do you guys have any idea how much it costs to register a bike in Iowa? I decided I am going to go ahead and register the Magna here (fingers crossed because I've got the Maine reg which doesn't come with a title). The thing qualifies as an antique I think, but I'll just do whatever is cheapest.

Yes it's $10/year if you have a title (at least that's what my VFR was, newer ones are around $30 IIRC). It was $80 last year for my car, trailer and 2 bikes.

We have to apply for them and it will be somewhere in the $1-200 range to get a bonded title I am guessing. May be way less, but I have never done it. Josh sent his paperwork in, so I am following his lead

If these had titles, they'd already have plates

pull the axles and see if yours are rusted. I had wheel bearings rusted to the axles almost welded together.

It rolls just fine, and I have new bearings already from a previous project. It turns over fine, needs the left side cover (3 speed auto) and sprokets BAD. The rest is all cosmetics and some saftey issues, but nothing I am worried about yet.

That ticket is about $200

I'm hoping I don't have to do a bonded title. The state of Maine doesn't issue or require titles for vehicles over 15 years old or so. Hopefully they do here in Iowa like they do in other states and just give me a new title for it...

BTW registration is freakin cheap here! It costs about $70 to renew my KLR in NE!

They won't give you a title unless you have a title for what you have currently. But if you do, they print IA title right then and there at the DMV.

From what the lady @ the DMV told me, for a bonded title, they go by the low Blue Book value, and you have to have a bond for 150% of that. You either give the DMV the $ to hold onto for the bond, or she said something about taking some form to your insurance company & they would put up the bond w/ you paying a much smaller percentage to your insurance company. I mailed the paperwork out about a week ago, so that's about all the further in the process I am. I'll be sure to update here when I hear more back.

Even if I have a valid registration for it? I am hoping I don't have to do the bonded title bullshit.

No idea. Why don't you call the DMV & ask?

I am too lazy, even though the Treasurer is probably a mile south of where I work
