You guys are a hoot! Yeah - I certainly agree that we go
through a lot of BS to obtain a title for a bike that's been
around for 50 or 60 years, and has never before been titled.
(e.g. the DMV requiring a "Records Search" in PA AND Ohio,
even though my 56B had never even been in Ohio).
But I'm sure you've all heard the old expression, "That
would take an act of Congress." For now, I'll spend my time
going through the proper steps to obtain a title under our
current system, instead of trying to get an "Act of
Congress" to change the system! Good luck with your
campaign!
Meanwhile, I DO have a 54ST I purchased with a Bill of
Sale that I still have to get titled. I feel a little more
confident that I can navigate "the system" a little easier
now that I've kind of learned the ropes. We'll see how that
goes.

Sounds like a plan. I had such a hard time getting a title
to a trailer built from 2 20 foot pieces of 1-1/2 X 3 tubing
how would any one get a title to any home built or assembled
from pieces. Petition your representatives in congress. Doug

Hummm. All this discussion, including the basic
impossibility of titling an untitled antique bike/car here
in Jersey made me realise the obvious question....what has
the AMCA to say about this? We're Nationwide and pay dues.
Have they broached the subject with the State reps? Would
Obama be willing to issue a National Title for the right
payoff--- (oops, user fee) to get these bikes on the road?
How about J.C. Taylor? They've been taking my money for
years for the few miles I put on my bikes. Are there other
Antique insurers that would like more M/C (car) business?
Let's write to them, let's start a movement...after all, we
all know this is actually BS that they are giving us such a
hard time and it really doesn't need to exist.
Even if 1% of these bikes were actually 'stolen' in the past
there has to be a statute of limitations.
