special construction title in pa

Does any one know the best way to get a special construction title in PA- I here it is frustrating and time consuming? I am in the process of building my first chopper and i would like to know exactly what I need and who I need to get this bike titled, registered, and insured by the time it is ready to role off the lift! Any info would be greatly appreciated!!!

just go down you your local tag/license shop and they will give you the forms you will need to fill out. According to the forms i had, PA requires two inspections. I remember it being more involved then NJ so i just did everything on the NJ side. then switched over to PA. the only tip i can give you is don't wait until your bike is done, cause then your bike is just gonna be sitting!

landisflames ,

I just got my Hardcore II titled in PA (Outside of Phila). I took my bike once it was complete to a local shop(Lucky Charm Choppers) that I deal with in Norristown, PA (Montgomery County) and they did the inspection and all the necessary paperwork. I then had to take four pictures of the bike Front, Rear and both sides and go to a notary. I suggest that you go to a notary who is familiar with special construction bike titling so that they donít screw up the paperwork. The notary I used is the same that my local chopper shop deals with, so they new what they were doing. Once all the paperwork is completed it takes about 4 to 8 weeks to get the title back. For me I got the title in 4 weeks the notary I used hand delivers all the paperwork to Penn Dot eliminating a lot time.

The bike will have to be finished before attempting to tittle it. You'll need all your receipts and MSO's. They calculate tax based on the total of receipts and what was paid on those receipts in sales tax. I mail ordered most of my stuff on the first build and got boned because I had to pay tax on all those parts. You'll definately need the receipts for the major parts. I think I had to make copies of the MSO's for the inspection shop for their files. I also made copies of the receipts for the state. It is a little time consuming however I looked at it like it would be hard for a theif if he had my parts to do this without the proper paperwork.

You will need the MSO's or at least a bill of sale for the frame, motor, and transmission. Keep all receipts for the parts that you purchased. PA will collect sales tax on any of the items that sales tax was not paid. Unfortunately Lucky Charm Choppers isn't around any more, they were good guys. Rullo Custom Cycles is close to the Philadelphia airport, and they know how to do these Special Construction PA Enhanced Vehicle Inspections with no problems. They had titles back in 10 days or so.

i dunno, if it took him ten fucking years to answer this poor guy's question, i'm not sure i'd want him handling the MSOs.

Back to the future...............hahahahahahaha................god damn!

Yep.....comes up in google 12 years later................still pertinent.

PA FAQ link http://www.dot.state.pa.us/public/dv...spconstveh.pdf

I'm researching for my own upcoming/ongoing work. In the past it was easier to just get a titled basket case and go to town.........but what fun would that be?
