    Some days it just doesn't pay to chew through the straps in the morning...

    So, I have a 1974 r90s motor.

    and I have a 70's era BMW factory replacement frame.

    with no VIN, and no paperwork.

    According to the state of texas, if I can get any authorized BMW dealer to write a note on BMW letterhead saying 'yes, this is a frame for a BMW, circa 1970s', they'll give me a VIN, and I can get a title.

    So far, I've not been able to find anyone willing to do the job. Thoughts?

    So, you called Alamo BMW? They said no? What was their reasoning?

    Does the engine have a VIN number on it?

    Alamo made some whimpering noise about 'liability', and refused to even discuss the matter.

    Yes, the motor has a nice clean vin that comes back as 'not stolen', and belonging to a 1974 r90s.

    I know you already have one but you should be able to pick up a used frame with a title for 50 bucks. Could save you some headaches...
