reconditioned if it's like CT. Is it a stock HD frame or a "composite" bike? Mine says composite, but no issue with reg. Could be the engine doesn't match the frame???

If you can't reg, then walk away.

Doing a quick google shows this site http://www.dmv.org/az-arizona/salvaged-vehicles.php that says if it was Salvage and then restored it would read "Restored Salvage"


If your title says 'recon' then it may be something else. Is it an Arizona title?

yes its a Arizona title. I called mvd and they said it has no brand (salvage) on it. they said its a regular title. just titled as recon. I can put full coverage insurance on it too. I know salvage you can only do liability. don't make no sence.

"Recon=Reconstruction", which infers it's a special construction motorcycle. Will not be titled a Harley. Good luck.

I agree with Vato.... this sounds like a 'special construction' title as if you had an aftermarket frame and engine. .... if the bike runs fine and you enjoy it, then that's that... but it will not be a 'Harley-Davidson' on paper... .(unless you get creative)

I have a Reconstruction title. The Make still says Harley Davidson, but there is a note on the title saying it is a collision reconstruction. This is how it was titled in Rhode Island then Massachusetts. Frame is Paughco, Sportster engine.
