MA reconstruction ??

I hope someone can help me out with a few questions I have about titleing a reconstruction in Massachusetts. I started out with a bike I had built by Stone's Motocyles back in 2003. It was a wide tire bike. I tore it down and went with a stock width Kraft tech frame. I reused the the front end, gas tank, motor, trans,primary, and some other small parts. The bike was originally built, titled, and registered in MA. I have title in hand.

1. Will I need to hunt down the original mso for the motor/trans? Or will MA already have that info in their system?
2. I have receipts for all the major parts I purchased. What do I do for the parts that I made? Do I just need to make an itemized list?
3. The exhaust I built has baffles. Will that be enough or will I need to have a muffler of some sort?
4. Do the turn signals need to be dot certified?

Those are questions that you'll probably have to ask the people that do the inspections for the dmv in your state. (Probably the state patrol) Every state is diferent.

I am in in florida.
I had to surrender all of my MSO's and MCO's when I titled my completed build to the DMV. I think most states are the same. The title from the donor bike should be sufficient - just tell the dmv you replaced the frame on the titled bike and they can change the records? Maybe avoid new registration and inspection? Surely people have needed to replace frames only before.
I listed my homemade parts as just that and stated I used scrap material.

Thanks for the responses. I'll most likely have to give the DMV a call and see what they say. I was kind of hoping that maybe someone on here had gone through a similar situation with a reconstruction and not a ground up special construction. I hear MA is a real pain the ass with this stuff. Just trying to save my self having to take multiple trips back and forth because I didn't have something in order.

Mass is a absolute nightmare with all the bull u have to go through on a build. They want a vin number for every single thing u put on your bike. It's insane.

Go to Vermont and have them do all that for you. And its completely legal.

They will have to do a vin verification for it.

You have a title for a different bike.

And the frame is the number one thing.

People change engines all the time.

But I'm just blabbering.
