Lord above. I guess it is his bike and can do what he likes to it, but how can that be MOT and tax free? The frame, or what is left of it, might once have been on a 66 Bantam, but not much else has. When you tax this, online or anywhere else, your confirming that the bike has had no substantial changes in the last 30 years. Clearly this has had some rather large changes over the last year or two...

Its no wonder DVLA have tried to tighten up.....

Current bikes......1958 D5, a 77 Suzuki GT250 and a 77 Honda CB125S. I have a 74 Kawasaki S3 400 and a B175 waiting for restoration. A 1980 Honda CB400N waiting for MOT.  Everyday ride is a 2011 Harley Davidson Sportster.

this is the weakness of relying on the frame number as the dating point.The engine is  a Chinese knock off Suzuki clone.I am not sure how this can be anything other than a fraud if it is claiming to be exempt.I think some action should be taken or we face discredit.I will report the listing to  Swansea if I can find a suitable heading.

You are quite right. That should be re-registered as a rebuilt classic and if DVLA allow the owner to keep the current registration there is no way it would be tax and MOT exempt. I would report it myself but I’m away at the moment. I may well do it when I’m home.
