Anyway, the vin# of the scoot (also the registration number of the title) gets assigned to that antique plate. So, it's like a vanity plate in a sense. Year of the plate has to match the year of manufacture on the title. The cool thing is though, you only have to renew the registration/plate every 5 years, AND it does not require a mechanical or emissions inspection. Definitely the way to legally run titled, vintage bikes in our state. Especially these 2-stroke particulate makers.
