      If you’ve got any ownership & sale documents – old MCO, Bill of Sale, etc. – you can give the ID DMV a call to see what they can do, otherwise you might consider looking into going through Vermont – at the very least, you’ll need a Bill of Sale and a VIN inspection if the engine is over 500cc.
