It can if you get an inspection certificate from a state inspection station stating that the bike is road worthy and everything works properly. Because it is an out of state salvage title you must have this paperwork. Once you get the report take the title and the certificate to title office. Do it quick because it only lasts for 90 days. Hope that helps.

To my knowledge you can't legally drive a bike in Texas with a certificate of destruction.

A CoD can not be legally registered to return to the street in TX or any other state for that matter. However, these types of vehicles are taken to other countries and used as regular transportation. These vehicles can only be used for parts in the US.

My mistake. I was talking about an out of state salvage title. Different states have other names for them. I didn't realize the two were not the same. That is the process I have had to go through in the past. My bad.

yeah, i remember you saying at some point that you had bought a running tl, that's why i was wondering if it was on the tl frame.

i've still got my hyo for sale for $3k, don't know how much you could get for the engine and other stuff parting out what you didn't need though.
