    Titled

    How are you? It should be easier than doing the Porsche a couple of years ago because that vehicle did not have a title and was not on the road for nearly 25 years. I have a bill of sale for the bike from Josh and also he has signed the title and it is presently registered in California so it should be easy to get it moved over to me here in Bismarck. With the Porsche I had to prove ownership which was more difficult. It is no different than if I just bought a bike on eBay from Josh. Wish me luck, cannot wait to see it again.

    Thanks,
    Shane

    I would think most state bureaucrats know that California is one of the toughest states for regulations, so you should be fine.

    After a short backtrack, it's all yours! Better take the Outlaw out this weekend, for one last time.

    Hey, if it's in Roseville I can drop over there, pick it up, and ride on up to ND for you, no charge. what a long wait for you, have fun when it arrives. It was a beautiful 59 degrees this morning with a high of 69 today. So much for global warming, gittin out the snow shovel.

    Bike Arrive July 31st, 2013

    The bike arrived yesterday. Josh put some pink and purple streamers on the handlebars and the truck driver said everyone was wondering if the bike was a girls bike, but he said "it does not look like a girls bike", or maybe he was delivering it to the late Liberace? Very funny prank. Took the bike for a long ride with my brother and his Harley. Going to get it licensed and registered today. Now the fun begins, the process is over but the enjoyment is just beginning. Thanks to everyone for supporting my restoration over this past 30 months.

    Sincerely,
    Shane

    A separate P-car garage!

    Hope the paint matches! Enjoy it on the weekend; I see Josh left the plate on.

    I wanted "Fast R75" but was one to many characters for vintage plates on bikes in North Dakota, so I went with "BMWR75"

    Thanks,
    Shane

    Abby

    My daughter found the Cafe Racer in the garage, I snapped a picture and did some photo editing with the colors and added the hat which she was not wearing, image was so popular on Facebook that Airheads BMW Motorcycle Drivers made the image their top banner for the past couple of days.
