I wouldn't stress it brother. John Law has better things to do than come look at the stamp on your engine case. Laws vary state to state so you'll want to check what yours are. I'd ask Mr Google not the DMV. Most states register or title (some don't issue titles for old bikes) based on the frame serial number instead of the engine one. If it is titled transfer is usually no problem and I would just do it like everything's fine and not question anything. The DMV doesn't know what serial number 438xxx means.thanks pablo94. This is stressing me out.
I did a '47 Chief a few years ago that had sat 20+ years in an unheated shed. Most of what I did should translate to yours.Thanks, while getting title work done want to start getting it startable after sitting inside (climate controlled) house for 5 years. Any thoughts or gotcha's will help here. Obvious are flush fuel tank/lines, carb, points, wires/spark, crankcase oil, valve sponges, tires and general lube.
