    Bah, what title issues?

    As long as it has a 17 digit VIN you can get a title for it.

    Even in CA.

    Buy now figure it out later or you will be sorry you passed on it.

    I use to ride with a couple of friends that had the same TDR at different times here around the Bay. I don't think it was that one. I think yet another freind of mine got that bike here in the states dubvioulsly but this particular guy has got all kinds of stroker street bikes into the country thusly.

    The vin was modified to match an exzisting title for a 1972 R-5, no way I'm going to deal with this issue.The bike is currently registered as an 1972 R-5. If the vin had not been modified I could deal with it.

    just received a set of New Old Stock upper side panels out of the UK in the correct blue/teal/pink:clap My right side panel was badly repaired after a fall over. Waiting for the new rubber /brass insert nuts to arrive so I can install them!

    That's what, about $500 more than a Chinese Husqvarna Rotax thumper...

    Reconditioning a tired example, adds up quickly.

    Adding the bodywork I have fortunately found and bought and all the other expenses of getting mine here, (along with that bike's stupid low mileage),I think its in the ball park.

    be careful, sounds like it might be a domestic Japanese bike with not enough vin digits
