SO CAL, anyone got a chp friend?

i have a 1975 honda xl100, i bought with "no paperwork" took it to dmv, they say i gotta go to CHP, theyre like 4 months out for an appointment. theres a shop i can take it to that'll do it for 140 bucks, but the bike was a 200 bucker beater, and was tryin to keep my total investment in the $650 range.

looking for a CHP friend i can get to verify this thing. its legit. i bought to make a little thrasher out of it, and for my kid brother to learn on/ride to school. i didnt wanna start work on it til i got it plated.

Try another chp office as the friend idea is not a good one.

If you can read the VIN number I would make an application for a duplicate title.

No need to take the bike.

Just get the long pink form and make the app out in your name. It may work.

Make a DMV appointment online first. Do not take the bike.

It's probably out of the system, it's better that way or you could owe hundreds in back fees.

It was out of the system, I paid all the fees to reg it and bring it back in the system (78 bucks) so now it's in my name, but they won't issue a title without a chp vin verification. They tell me all out of system bikes now require a chp verification.

you will then not have to deal w/the DMV again

but yes, try another CHP office, or find a cop to do it for ya, but i dont thing any officer is gonna sign off on this sight unseen

I had AAA do an inspection on a bike that I bought from another state. While I had a title from Wisconsin, the CA DMV still required a physical inspection. It took all of 15 minutes. If I were you, I would load it in a pickup and head down to your local AAA office. Mine is Fullerton and they are great.

On a related note: I just got the new Westways magazine and there was an ad for AAA that they are doing registrations for off-road vehicles now. This means they now have red and green stickers, so we no longer have to go to the DMV for new offroad bike transfers.

Oh you started the process, and posted the fees, I see. Well now you have to see it through. I'm not so sure a AAA verification is same as a CHP verification. The CHP may well stick on a metallic plate with a 17 digit VIN.

Four months out seems odd though. Can you try another CHP office, maybe further out of town?

Yeah, try a CHP office in someplace like Temecula or something. Almost everything in that town is new, so they can't be too backed up.

The CHP office Baldwin Park wait time is about 3 to 4 days. I just had a totaled truck inspected there.

theres a safety inspection, and then theres a vin verification

i dont need a safety inspection, i have to have a vin verification. i dont know why, bike has 534 miles on it. the frame and engine numbers are clearly visible, and not altered. the DMV did their vin inspection and said its all i need, then the guy in the office said i had to go to CHP. i asked to speak with a manager, the manager asked "well, what kind of bike is it?" i said "its just an old honda" she then said "all hondas have to have a CHP vin inspection" then she walked away.

bikes probably not worth my time in doing this.

anyone want an XL100?

I paid 200 for it, got a real nice xr100 tank for it (coil needs to be moved to fit) and paid the fees at the DMV to bring it back to life.

I'll take 200 for it.

It's got compression, spark, and low miles. My buddy cleaned the carb while it was at his house, and here it is. I know it needs a cable or 2, and a seat and some fresh tires.

I bought with intention of a mini street tracker/neighborhood smasher.
