Don't mean to sound like a smartass but, maybe you could ask the people at the tax assessors office.
They should know the real answer or at least point you in the right direction.

You can have the frame stamped but problem is I dealers ate gonna do, at this point of you want a street legal one it would probably be cheaper to buy another bike with a clean title rather then paying all the tx dot fees and registration and stamping the frame is almost impossible to get done legitimately.

not true.

I've done this with my 50.

take your bill of sale and any associated paperowrk that you have and you have to request a title hearing before the justice of the peace. present everything you have to them and hopefully they will award you ownership of the bike. you take the form they give you to the TxDot office and they will assign you a number to stamp on the frame. stamp that number and trace it with a pencil and piece of paper. they will then send you a title and allow you to register it. before you can get the hearing though, you need to have it looked at by the vehicle theft division, i used the one on 646 in dickinson.
it a little tricky getting insurance because they want a 17 digit vin but mine is TX727191, clearly not 17 digit. there is a motor number right behind the gear shift lever they will want to run to make sure it's not stolen. if your bill of sale has that motor number on it then it will be easier to prove ownership

How long did you spend in government offices, and what was your total cost for all of this? Great info!

Yes. It can. I personally have one myself. Its fun to putt around with. Cost me about 400 or so total. That's for bonded title, registration, lights etc.. actually a bit more than 400. Most of it came from title paperwork.

rode it to work yesterday (bout 13 or so mins in car) so it was about twice as long on neighborhood streets. its stock and im about 200 so it is a !!! but I plan on a 140 motor swap

cost is probaby around 300? lets see.
light-20-30
tail light 20-30
stator 50-75
wiring/connectors 10-20
mirror 20-30 (bar end)
inspection sticker 14.50
insurance X

just a couple hours total and total cost was around $200 including $14 inspection, $40 ish or whatever for registration. stator for lights was $50. it's been a while so i don't remember all of the details. I did pout it in a thread a long time ago though, back around '08. I'll see if i can find it

here is the exact process i went through taken from the post right after i did it.

i just got my crf50 street legal today!!! it has an aftermarket frame, so it had no VIN. needed a bill of sale, a form 68A done on it (in my area it was by the Galveston County Auto Crimes Task Force, (409) 766-4500). take that to the TxDOT office at 610 and 290... the will not award a VIN and title based on those so they will give you a rejection letter, make sure you get this. Take that back to the registration office, they will scedule a title hearing with the tax assessor/collector. if you have sufficient evidence they will sign a piece of paper awarding you ownership. take that back to the DOT office, they will give you a TEX###### to be used as a VIN. get insurance, get it inspected, then go register it
