In a lot of states, yes you can tag it, you'll receive a salvage title for it. Should've posted this in the General Motorcycle discussion forum thread though.

My '86 SEI had a salvage title. It had Oregon tags on it when I got it. Changed the tags to Washington with no problem. Depends on the state but I think most of them will title a salvaged bike. Your state may require an inspection but Washington didn't.

Most places would require a safety inspection for the first time titled as a salvage vehicle... after that nothing different than any other vehicle... I've had several salvage vehicles (not motorcycles) and it was extremely easy... (and sometimes it slips through the cracks and you get an unblemished title by mistake)

Check your local DMV. I found a great deal on a 1200 a couple of years ago. Bike had salvage/rebuilt title from another state. It was going to cost me about $1500 to get another salvage title for Illinois. Then it would still be tagged as salvage. Not sure what problems that would cause when I went to sell it.

Ah well, it was Illinois after all.:cooldevil:Perhaps a $20 to theDMV clerk might have reduced the price.:cheeky1::cheeky1::cheeky1:

California makes it pretty easy

You'll spend an hour or so and feel worthless but I didn't pay any fees other than the registration.
I did figure out that having a cycle shop lights/brake cert the bike safed me form a $35 CHiP checkup.
