Honda CX500 GL500 Forum
I’ve been trying to obtain a legal title by having the last owner/ operator apply for a replacement title, but the process seems to have stalled. The most direct route to that goal seems to lie thru New Hampshire. I’m in NJ, so trailering the bike to NH is feasible. Ultimately, assistance from someone in the southern end of the state would shorten the trip, but I’ll go wherever necessary. Immediately, I’d like to talk to anyone who is familiar with the procedure. (How long does it take to get the title, how long does the bike have to stay there, what are the (state, local, personal) fees, etc. how to paint motorcycle fairing )
It would be helpful if this could be initiated about three weeks from now.
I’m in southern NH, but am not familiar with what you need to do. Why NH, was your vehicle last registered here? I attempted to chase an old title in GA once, but dropped the idea real soon. Today, with huge databases, I would think it would be possible to find last owners or at least eliminate the chance that a vehicle had been reported stolen. I can’t offer to run all around the state for you, but if you strike out after calling Concord you can try me for advice, etc.
1) a current registration and
2) a notarized Bill of Sale
as sufficient documentation for issuance of a NJ title in the case of a vehicle coming in from a non titling state and the agent was aware that NH is such a state. He specifically mentioned, however, honda cbr600rr fairings oem that the vehicle must be registered to a person, not a company. So, it seems that an assist from someone in NH would be sufficient to start my title process. I was hoping Bruce in Derry («rodent») would ring in on this, as his post in another thread indicates that he’s experienced with this procedure. Anyone in NH (preferrably southern! : ) willing to host my bike for a visit from the local police department and mail me the notarized BoS a discrete time later, please contact me ASAP!
Bruce’s earlier post in another thread suggests that a bike lacking state issued documents can be registered in NH (by a NH resident), but the bike must be physically present in NH to start the process. This is most likely to allow an inspection to verify integrity of the frame and VIN plate. I assume the VIN would then be checked against all available Hot Lists to verify that it is not reported as stolen. That NH registration and a BOS from the same NH resident would then be acceptable to obtain a NJ title. The NH procedure may require a BOS from me. Bruce states that he has gotten registrations this way numerous times, 2008 cbr 1000rr fairings and I’d really like to get the details from him but he hasn’t been around lately.
I have spoken with the last person to have a legal connection with the bike, and am assured that they parted with the bike willingly and with compensation but getting a replacement NJ title seems to be extremely complicated.
Any knowledgeable (preferably SW : ) NH resident, please respond ASAP!
There are multiple problems with direct application for a duplicate NJ title, compounded by the death of the previously titled owner and the widow’s frequent lack of sobriety. Trust me when I say that regarding that route, «there is no try».
Multiple consultations with NJDMV have convinced me that the best route to a NJ title is via a registration and BOS from a
non titling state. NH appears to be the closest state able to initiate
the process. I don’t mean to be rude, but PLEASE understand that I need to speak with someone IN NEW HAMPSHIRE who is WILLING TO ASSIST with this procedure.
BRUCE («rodent») WHERE ARE YOU ??? 2005 honda cbr600rr fairings
DONaldo88 are you willing to inquire about the details at city hall? It might run up a red flag if I call from NJ to inquire about registering a vehicle in NH!
