I know it's not applicable to your situation, but Missouri along with other states are gettig really tough on Assembled Bike / Special Construction titles. I'm in the process of buying a Spec Const bike from a guy. It had a valid Illinois assembled bike title, but MO wont recognise any other states titles for these kind of bikes and makes you submit all the MSOs and receipts and have it inspected by State Police Troop C before they'll take an application for MO title. Glad I found this out before buying it. He's been working the issue for nearly 2 months with no clear end in site.
