    i think there was an article in scootering about this last year,

    it was when they were doing that small frame project, but as it had not been registered in this country yet, there was a strict procedure to follow so you don't get caught out.

    i would seek professional advice or advice off someone who has done it before,

    before riding and being pulled and bollocked,

    in theory if it hasn't been registered, then you won't have a uk numberplate for it, so you can't ride it on the road until it has the bare minimum legally to get it to an mot centre, who can fail it if you don't have a legal plate

    they rite mate, a would risk it normally but not with ur lammy when u have put that much into the engine not worth it, just woundering jord is it exspenciv to regester sompthing, looking at a few lammy chopps but thy have no numbers logbook or v5, basicly they dont exsist lol, numbers will hav been use for other bike no dout but they go quite cheep, so if i could get a lammy chop with no numbers then re regester it it would be spot on, not really botherd about age related plates, and mot wise i can get anything passed Wink

    the sprint i got in the shed was imported and the vin number is pretty much unreadable after "VLB" - so when me mate went to register it they ended up sending him to some place where they rivetted a new number on and it got put on a Q plate

    It's not to expensive to get a vehicle registered, its the price of an mot, road tax, insurance and a fee to the dvla...

    i know u shouldnt but some time some insures if u insure a bike then swap it over they only charge the admin fee not wat it should be for the bike i did it with the vespa with the lammy insurance but when u insure a bike on the vin number it only last for 14 days and u have to get the reg num in those days
