Going to check out an old trike frame,,than had a Honda neck put on it ( long ago ) . The guy has the title , I'm sure this is a state to state thing,,but how would this play out ? Honda trike frame , even though it HD ?? or just throw a titled motor in it and forget about it

there should be 3 ways to do it..
1. you put a titled pre 1969 HD motor in it you could just bondo over those numbers and pretend that never even happened.
2. Or you could register it as a Honda with a replacement later HD motor in it.
3. put what ever motor in it you want and register it as a 2012 SPCN (special construction)

I had a covair trike several years back that was titled to the honda neck that was used when it was built. Never had any problems from the police or when getting it inspected

That would be a big issue in Florida, the neck # requires a title, & superseeds any other #'s there may be. Even if you have a titled motor, if something looks suspect to them, they will make you, or they will remove any paint/bondo etc to expose any possible #'s. Here in Fl, we have #'s police. They will stop you at random & check the vin # on your bike, I have been stopped 3 times so far and have to spoon feed them correct information backed up by paperwork or they will impound your bike,"Pending Investigation" which takes 6 months minimum.
Just another way to bust balls, but the FHP auctions are sweet !!!!

I've titled and registered many hobby cars and motorcycles in my state and I have never been asked to show them the vehicle. That means I've never been asked to show the vin on the vehicle either.

That works fine, but if you're out riding, you're subject to getting pulled over, going through road side checks, etc. If you're at an event, there could be leo's checking numbers. Just something to keep in mind when stretching the rules.
