When I spoke with Curt he mentioned something about not having submitted for a manufacturing permit or something to that extent. Since there was not enough interest to produce them I guess he didn't spend any more money then needed.

This is not something I gave much thought as I am a car guy and they typically always come with titles. LOL If you have any advice please give me as many details as possible.

The 96" motor has a bigger stroke then the 95" so it wont rev as high. Depending on what you want to use it for you might want to think about it. I can give you several places that sell used harley evo motors and trannys for very reasonable prices. As much fun as I think it would be to stuff a hugh twin in there 120" or around that area the more I think about reliability the more I like the idea! Such a short wheelbase with 130ish ft tq would make it a wheelie monster but the thought of adjusting valves and everything all the time takes some fun out of it in my opinion.

I have spoken with them before and recently found out they do not make all of their frames. Not exactly sure if they make any of them or just retail them but you can search and find some of the same rollers for sale other places cheaper.

I titled mine in June. It's pretty easy as long as you have MSOs for the engine, transmission and frame.

MSO is a manufacturers statement of origin. If the parts are new, they should come with an MSO. If you build with used parts you just need receipts or the title from the donor bike.
