    If anybody can provide a little enlightenment I'd be much obliged. I am looking to purchase a big bore dirt bike in the coming weeks (preferably a Katoom 450 or 525) and am wondering if anyone knows how to go about making them street legal. Logistically I have it handled (lights, stator, etc), however I hail from California where NOTHING is street legal unless it starts with a plate from the dealer.

    How hard is it to get a plate for street use on a "dirt bike". Any and all help would be appreciated.

    This thread is what you need.

    You can plate anything in Colorado.

    Very easy. And the best thing is that you do the inspection!

    I did a search, and didn't come up with that thread.

    Jason-

    Shoot me a PM if I can help- I'm a dealer and can do VIN Verifications (which you'll need).

    Have Neduro show you the pic of his old XR100 with a plate on it. I never fail to get a chuckle over that one.

    A Cow-orker just plated his pristine WR500. I can't wait to take it for a spin. Plating an MX bike can be a little tougher, but I know guys that have plated CRs.

    Yet another reason I could never live in CA.
