DMV Registration Question for YZ125

I own a 1975 Yamaha YZ125 that I bought about 12 years ago from a friend for $250. There was no pink slip or paperwork of any kind exchanged in the deal (he lost all paperwork or never received it himself, I can't remember). This wasn't a big deal to me since I had only planned to ride it on some remote private property in the Sierras. It's been a fun bike for puttering around and now I want to sell it via a classified ad. The question of the pink slip will come up though, I'm sure, by a prospective buyer. Does any one here know what DMV forms, red tape, etc I need to legally transfer ownership of the bike from me to someone else? Also, what would the costs be?

By the way, if you live in the San Jose, CA area and are interested in buying it, drop me an email at [email protected] It's a nice bike; great for young and/or new riders or vintage collectors. Its in good condition. Thanks!

The best thing I can tell you is to call the DMV for your state and see what they can do to help. Good luck.

It really depends upon the state DMV requirements. Here in Iowa, you can just make up a bill of sale, stating the year, model and VIN/Serial Number and sign it and it's as good as a Certificate of Origin.

If you've had the bike for that long and its been unregistered for that long well....... After 7 years all unregistered thingies "fall" off the DMVs list, so if I were you I'd bring the bike to DMV and have them give you a new pink slip and a green sticker, Oh dont forget to get an apointment [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
