    Problems with DMV?

    When I took my bike in last year to get classic plates, had to make appointment, show up on time, get in line, wheel bike into garage, napolian ordered me out of the room to wait outside, door closed?

    Wondered if I'd need a lawyer, after 15 minutes the "inspection" was complete. Didn't start the engine, couldn't have checked anything mechanical or blinkers/horn.

    Only thing I figure is he had an optical devise to git behind the fairing/cables to check ID plate rivets with the chassis stamping.

    So to this day I don't know what goes on in there except they must be checking for stolen bikes/parts? Removing any ID or changing rivets could be a problem unless you've got a common sense DMV in booming ND.

    I did the same thing with the Porsche, when I needed to get it registered I had to show a certified proof of purchase, also had to have a Sheriff out to the house to inspect the car. Went into the DMV here in ND and gave them my inspection papers and my bill of sale did not have the VIN number on it, the guy I bought it from never put it on the sheet, anyways the lady behind the counter had an issue, talked to her manager and they had me wait also for about 30 minutes, finally I took her to a computer in the office and went to my restoration website and showed her what I had done with the car and on the site the VIN number was there and my name was on the site so she said "good enough for me", kind of funny really, so if you want to steal a car or bike, just make a restoration website up about the stolen vehicle and present it and there should be no issues? Bureaucracy.

    I will have the original VIN plates in my possession of there are any issues, but we are not the first person to restore a vehicle and VIN plate blanks are readily available for any make and model of vintage car. I can see the concerns.

    Thanks,
    Shane

    PS: It should be noted that the Sheriff was so enthralled with the car that I could have told him anything. The car has no bumpers, has no front license plate, it does have seat belts but I could have told him anything and he would have believed me because he knew nothing of this type of car. He had me put the blinkers on and push the horn and that was it. He said "You have done an amazing job on this car and who would I be to stop it from getting registered, good enough for me!" The Porsche cars have a VIN plate under the front spare tire under the hood, which I kept the original on the car, and there there is a plate in the drivers door and the case for the motor is in 3 pieces and 3ach piece has its own stamping, so in order to really figure out if a stolen car or a stolen motor, it would have taken a Stuttgart specialist to pull that one off.

    What are the add-on looking steel plates on the crank for? I've never seen anything like those on a car crank.

    any idea of where the original schematic came from or know of anywhere to get a high resolution version of it? it's super cool.

    Most likely it came from here; if so, a source should be provided:

    Other very nice schematics on the page.

    Yes, I agree, I am very good about citing sources, but this was just a random image on the internet and the originating website that was the source for the image said "URL Not Valid", so I do not know who to give credit to, sorry guys. It looks like the same image from BMBIKES.CO.UK but I am sure they did not draw this either and it is owned and provided by BMW originally.

    Thanks,
    Shane
