Tried doing a search on this but no luck. My question is how would you go about registering a home built frame vs a frame built by a shop? I was not sure if there was a difference between the two. Thanks

Stamping the frame won't matter to the CHP because they will make the determination as to the bike's status as either a special contruction or original HD. They may well use the numbers as is, or stamp their own.
A Harley frame is unique. For one thing, the motor mounts are cast. An aftermarket frame uses square bar steel. Also, there will be a letter stamp near the motor mount on an HD frame. Though occasionaly (because there is no continuity among agencies or personnel) the CHP inspector might designate your bike as an HD anyway with an aftermarket frame, if the engine cases are HD.
The new EPA law is a joke and most agencies have no way of knowing how to enforce it. Chop what you got. And if you have any serious problems, call TCS in Sacramento. The agents at the DMV headquarter's Technical Compliance Services know all the rules and are helpful.
My apologies..I didn't realize my words would be taken so seriously. Just cuz I said I'd do it ..doesn't in any way make it a good idea. I don't really have any regrets to date, but thats me. I would probably enjoy the bike with my version of the factory numbers for weeks or maybe even years, and be pissed when it got confiscated, then, I'd pay out the nose for fixing my paperwork, then, I'd get back on the bike and ride off into the sunset..It was all jus my two cents.I'm like that.To clarify, the numbers would be those on the frame, title and motor so they were all, "correct".Ripper® said:And, I agree 100% with Dragon, please stop giving this "advice" to stamp your own VIN to people. It's a really bad idea.
