tagging an out of state bike/frame in georgia?

Hi guys general question here

1. whats needed to tag an old 25 year plus with an out of state title or that was never plated before in Georgia?

2. can you plate a never plated before bike in state? meaning if I buy a bike that was a barn find or simply never titled or plated can you start from scratch or new if you will?

3. Im assuming tagged and titled from out of state is easy to do? just get local plates?

any help and or info would be greatly appreciated...

Im specifically looking for input on builds say from a non op bike that will come from another state and I finish building, tagging and titling here

if thats possible Im all ears

thanks much

Christian

What Christian is really asking is can a Honda XR600 be plated for the street in Georgia.

if you have the title that's been signed over to you. Pays your monies and carry on. Provided of course your mandatory minimum liability insurance policy is ACTUALLY logged in the damn computer system h:

for 1985 and older you can get a tag with just a bill of sale.

Are you the Clemson klr rider that went Mia in South America?

Really old bikes are doable, but that subject has been beaten to death.
Much easier to buy one with a tag already. I had an xr600r with ga title/tag. Actually the guy I sold it to May sell it soon.

no Im an ex klr rider from el salvador that swithced over to the dark or sunnyier xr600 side! jajaja

xr600 are few and far between here in georgia...and they are kind of on the pricey side even compared to california

As usual im being cheap here and wanting a nice rebuild project for the winter

I have some friends with parts and frames out of state and wondering how and what I need to do to get a plate on a parts bike regardless of where its froms

I know some states are easy some not

I know for sure that if the bike is titled and plated in another state its easy to simply switch over to georgia

anywhoo

would be interested just in case btw...jajaja

would where it comes from matter?

or does the bill of sale not specify where and where?

some info I posted on the xr600 thread that I could gather from different places

almost as bad as california...however if it was tagged and titled in another state its EASY AS PIE to transfer....





here in georgia dmv is the last place you go, first you get the bike inspected, sherrif, you get a title and if nobody claims the bike(if for example the bike doesnt have a current or title ever before) after 1 year you are good to go.

then you get PLATES

if anyone is interested this is what I need to do here:
http://www.dmv.org/ga-georgia/motorc...gistration.php

however im confused on doing a BUILD say from parts

here is a classic can I plate a dirt bike in georgia or any other similar state
http://www.thumpertalk.com/topic/151...orgia-process/

it boils down to what the vin or manufacturer of origin states the frame or bike useage or purpose if anywhere something shows up as offroad only no matter what you cant get plates

UNLESS ITS AN 1986 OR OLDER where you can get a title at least(dont know about tags)

and here is what CAN be done(sounds like el salavdor hard jajaja)
http://www.thumpertalk.com/topic/105...te-in-georgia/

basically you get a bonded title

and lastly here on adv a 3 year old thread:
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=710067

thats the jizt folks sorry for the hijack but hope its helpful to anybody else here in georgia

so I have options but not that good really

Im still confused on what a build from scratch requires...maybe an xrl frame route like in CA would by pass the offroad only status

I could also try going to a rural dmv and trying that out which shouldnt be hard since Im close to the boonies if you will jajaja

peace guys and thanks to all for the help

really hope I can make this happen!

Do you have a title for the bike? If yes, and it has your name on the front as the owner or on the back as the last buyer (can't skip ownership), then get insurance on the bike and go to the local tag office to get your tag. If you don't have a title, good luck.

You're going to have to go to the tag office of your county seat to get a tag.

I just did my car, the tag offices here are near my house

if the title has me as a new buyer(pink slip) even if its from out of state(the title that is) can it be sold to me?

If the bike has a title and the owner listed on the title signs the title over to you, you can get a tag and the title swapped over to you. It being from out of state won't matter. I've bought more than a few bikes and my truck from out of state.
