This is my new ride. picking it up tomorrow all plans laid. It's not registered yet but I'm hoping to have a V5c for it in the near future (with a bit of help from the club)

The truth is as simple as 1+1=2 How can it be anything else?

Alarm bells ringing! From what I understand, you may have to jump through all sorts of hoops and barrels to get an unregistered bike registered with the sort of changes made to yours. Best make sure it's possible before you shell out the cash.

As Cocorico said,that's going to be a very tricky one to register being heavily modified  it won't qualify for an age related plate ( Historic)but I think the best you can hope for is a dreaded Q plate ,maybe Tim Randles will give you all the up to date info,good luck!

I like specials and it is certainly interesting and looks as though it stops well, (not sure about the rear brake hydraulic line) and it probably goes OK too but is it a Bantam?
