Thanks for that info. This forum has totally made this restoration possible. I am really close to riding my 62 Scatt, the same year and model I got for a Christmas present in 1962 at the age of 14. 50 years of biking followed.
Thanks again. Will send piks of completed bike when it happens.

Minnesota is a great state to live in!

First, they make it easy when you do not have a title.

Second, you can register it as a "classic" for a small one-time fee. Tag never expires. The restrictions - you can NOT use it for general daily transportation (like going to work), and you must have another vehicle with regular registration.

Also, if you can find a 1962 MN motorcycle license plate, you can wear that instead of the "classic" plate.

MN DPS changed their website around recently, but here's the law:

Third, it seems that MN has no vehicle safety inspection program except for commercial trucks and buses. (Or maybe they do, but I can't find it). Even if they do, most states waive any inspection requirement for "classic" tags.

I'm moving to Minnesota...

My question. In general how do the states
look at street legal requirements for
classic motorcycles? I would have all the
requirements of 1962 but would not have
current equipment requirements. Any
thoughts?
