Are you asking about how to register the bike? Many states don't require a title for a vehicle that is beyond a certain number of years. You may only need to have your friend's dad sign a bill of sale for you. He can sell you the bike for probably one dollar or such. My dad had Alz. and died from it. Not an easy road to travel for all involved. Check motor vehicle in your state for rules concerning titles and transfer of ownership without being too specific personally.
