Re-title Salvage Frame?

Just wondering if anyone has experience with this... I'm sure there are going to be exceptions to every rule, but generalizations are ok for the moment.

I've got a frame that I'm wanting to do some chopping on (currently no title, but VIN runs clean) and I'm thinking that if everything works out with it the way I want I'll get a bonded title on it to get it back on the street.

HOWEVER, should I decide I've screwed it up, it's structurally unsound, etc, I'm wondering about the possibility of getting a frame from one of the dismantling companies on ebay (Sun Coast Cycles, for example). All of their auctions state that they cannot sell a frame with a title, and they are bill of sale only.

I guess then the question is if it's possible to get a title issued for these frames to get registration for street use if you build a bike around one.

For street purposes, if it is from out of state, you can usually have the title transferred and re-issued as long as it is not a Certificate of Destruction title. I'm pretty sure if it is a salvage title, you only need to show proof of passing inspection and they will issue a rebuilt title/blue title. But, you need some kind of title. A bill of sale will mean that you would need to ask for custom built title and I'm not sure about that one.

I've done the out of state title myself, but it's been a while. Maybe things changed, maybe not.

Yeah, that's what worries me. So far, regardless of state (New York, Florida, Ohio companies so far), they all say that state law prohibits them from selling frames with a title but they'll do bill of sale. I'll keep digging online and see what I can find out. If it's a frame that would only be good to use on a track bike then it isn't really worth it to me.
