Hi all I am new to this forum. I recently purchased a 1985 KLR250 now when I bought it there were two things about it that stood out. 1 It has no title 2 It did not run. With the title in mind I was told provided the vin did not come up as stolen I could apply for a title in my name and would get one. I am currently in NEW YORK I purchased a vehicle history report and it came up that the bike was last registered in 1996 in massachusetts. So that is my first question I guess do you think it will be tough to obtain a title? The vehicle history report said it was not stolen. I assume the origional owner lost the title and sold it with just a bill of sale. Secondly when I bought it I was told it needed a CDI box and it would run. Now I took it to I guess you can say a backyard mechanic and they basically told me the whole electrical system is shot. Lets go with worse case scenario and say he is right and I take it to a shop. Do you think it would cost more then $1,000 to fix it completely? Also do you think its worth it.
