Does anyone knows what is required to license and register a salvage title bike?? I called the DMV but after 30min or so on hold I gave up....my main question is do I need mirrors,turnsignals? and horn etc??

I know I need lights and tail lights...

Alf: Do you mean rebuilt or certificate of destruction?

You cannot register a certificate of destruction.

You can register a rebuilt just like a clear title bike. No difference.

You bought the bike from someone... they gave you the title? Right? It says rebuilt on it right? If so, you don't have to do anything. You just go to the DMV or to a tag agency and register it.

It sounds like you have the "rebuildable", but not yet rebuilt title. If so it does need to go through the inspection to transition to "rebuilt".

In that case you will defeinitely need an inspection from what I have read. As far as turn signals, I don't know for sure. Is it required by florida law for bikes to have them or can you use hand signals? If it is not required then who needs them... Same question for the horn and mirrors.

i've registered a couple of bikes without turn signals. headlight, tail light, brake light and horn are the essentials.

Alf, it will also need a speedo/odometer. I had a friend build a chopper in his garage and had to get a DMV inspector to check it out. I'll make some calls and see if I can get you a number for an inspector. From what I remember there are only a couple of inspectors for the entire County. :)

What kinda bike is it? was it a ninja 250 off ebay? If so, i was looking at it as well.

I did some research, and it sounded like a pain, so didnt go for the bike. Pretty much you just have to make it look pretty again.. fix all the broken stuff. On the fairings, she wasnt sure if they had to be new(non cracked) or if just getting them painted so you dont see scratches is enough. You get it all good and ready, then you schedule an appointment at the Palmetto DMV office/tax collector office, and the guy will look it over then. Best bet is to try to call that office, and speak to someone who knows for sure.

Then it can be registered. Only problem is figuring out what has to be fixed, and what is fine.

Alf, call Motoconnection and talk to Jayson. Ask him what they have to do to get it inspected...
