RE: Need advice on a motor cycle that has never been registered
Can't tell how much my experience will relate to yours, but I re-registered old Honda 70 trail bike, that had all papers lost.
The original owners gave me bill of sale and DMV started "investigation".
Finally they gave me registration (after inspection) what I belive was based on the physical presence of the bike, but not on any paper they actually found.
Having other experience with DMV, when they lost all transfer papers with $700 payment on other vehicle and refused to start investigation, I doubt they will even attempt to check it.
