Hey to the Deuce world, can someone check my understanding of North Carolina?

I just got my first bobbed Deuce and once its got some brake work done I need to look into registration, plates, insurance.

So far this is my understanding:
-Since it was purchased from a dealer and has a title I DO NOT need to do the SF-97

-Since mine is bobbed and 2 axle, I can do a weighted Antique plate and only drive it "occasionally" (Ill drive it a ton when I first get it for sure!)

- I can put a 1970 plate on it since that is the year it is, or just paint my plate numbers on the bumpers in military fashion (I think I read that on the boards here)

-State Farm wants to do a commercial policy (I dont want farm b/c of the mileage restriction and I live in an apartment while in school) but a commercial policy wont affect any fees with the DMV b/c they are separate

-No CDL b/c of the dual axles

Thanks for the help!


Lots of changes planned including taking off that bed!

If you have a title you don't need a sf97.

All of the other questions are state specific so I'll let somebody from your state answer those.

Id lose the pickup truck bed and go with a M105 bed
not on subject but i saw that truck in another thread,are u going to change the bed?
Yep Im already looking for a 105 or 101 (I still need to learn the differences between them)

If you have a title you don't need a sf97.

06 Chevy bed? I seem to have a pickup that resembles the rear of your deuce and a deuce that resembles the front of yours, but I would never think of putting the two together.

I'm getting ready to take the bed off my deuce for a paint job. I'll let you know how a Chevy looks with a Deuce bed shortly. Pics will follow, in a while. ( possibly in a long while as it is hay baling season in NE Ohio, and we finally have good weather)

yes I am serious as to taking the bed off of my '07 Classic Chevy and putting the bed of my Deuce on it for S%!ts and giggles, but it will be a few weeks as I have said it is prime hay making season right now

M101 bed is narrower and only 8'. The M105 bed wider and 9' in length. The M101A3 bed has wider fenders and probably better suited for a bobbed deuce. Halfbreed would be a befitting name for your truck as it sits. LOL

A 105 bed will be too long for that wheel base.

Sorry but I don't mind the looks of it as it is,
Where's the exhaust ?
Well that helps narrow down finding a trailer bed, hopefully it wont be to hard to get one. Now if I put a 105 on it, they seem to be A LOT easier to find, it would just take a little work to move the axle to fit correct?

The exhaust is running out the back behind the right pass tire but Id life to turn it back to the single stack
