T-Bomber build attempt

I've got a project bike I've been working on for a couple years now but I can't get it quite right. My 71 Trophy was junk when I started but it's got a healthy motor now but I've got some frame issues. I purchased a replacment frame just for alterations as my original frame and engine have matching numbers and I don't want to destroy the value should I want to sell it in the future. My replacment frame is a 75 Bonnie (I think) but unfortunatelly I didn't get any legally acceptable papers with it and I fear the owner has expired so a title is outta the question. What I'd like to have done have the neck replaced with something that I can title but raked so that I can put the forks from my trike on it.
here's the pics:


As you can see the trike is more or less complete c'ept for a body and I hate to part it out but that one also has title problems, and the forks need some work. I don't think I can find (or afford) a replacment case for the numbers so they're both just sitting in the garage waiting...
Until I find a decent frame shop I'm kinda stuck. Anyone have an idea or opinion ??

Cool Re: T-Bomber build attempt

On a bike that age you can go through a Title Co. like Broadway title Phone 800-464-3222, Birmingham, Al. they can take care of the problem. Mixed numbers lost titles ect. as long as its not stolen they can get you a title. Or Terry's tag and title410-517-3111. Broadway has been easier to work with for me!
You've got your work cut out for you, but I've started with worst and ended with some nice bikes. Working on a '54 triumph now but lost interest because it dosn't sit as low as I wanted but don't want to gut off the Santee plunger setup.

You can buy a junk frame with title and cut the neck off and weld it to your bike.

I like that old girder on the trike, way kewl!!

I got a title company doing a search on the trike, if it comes back clean I can decide if I wanna rebuild it or find an old sporty rolling chassis so I can part the forks out to a modded triumph frame. I'll keep ya's posted- till then my old GPz will keep me entertained (if i don't kill myself on it)
