If you buy a bike with a V5C and the frame no. matches, you'll have no problems. You will need to advise your insurer of any mods you do, if you want to get kosher cover.P.S. What do you know about bolting a hard tail on to an exisiting old bike. Can you keep the same registration etc ?
Pre '73, there are very few requirements, ie. no indicators etc., but anything fitted must work OK. There are a few M.O.T. places on the south coast that are "understanding", but not for banding about the internet. Let me know when you are ready and I'll point you in the right direction.**** , what about the M.O.T. when the bike is finished , will it be a problem if there are some mods to the bike ?
Take a look at my bike, I don't see there will be a problem with the MOT. If you Google MOT rules you can download a booklet. I did that and just made sure I conformed to the rules. Its really no sweat.**** , what about the M.O.T. when the bike is finished , will it be a problem if there are some mods to the bike ?
Hi ****, I might have a bike lined up which was imported a while ago from Australia and has never been registered so no V5C , do you think that would be a problem or would your comments above still standIf you buy a bike with a V5C and the frame no. matches, you'll have no problems. You will need to advise your insurer of any mods you do, if you want to get kosher cover.
If you are starting from scratch, you'd be best advised to get a whole bike to start with, regardless of condition. At least this way, you know whats meant to be there, even if you junk half of it. You can trade or sell the bits you don't want to get some of your money back.
If you are going to Netley Marsh, Friday is the better day to go, if you can blag time off work.
Not yet mate , I might have one lined up which was imported from Australia a few years back , but I am worried about legal stuff with regard to putting a bolt on hard tail because its not got a Log Book , so its never been registered in the U.K.yes mate put it on but bad time to sell a bike just now i fink so i will kepe it for now . not giving it away did you get your bike ???
