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?

Had a good look for a VIN number, but it has been ground off together with the engine mountings or just invisible to me. However, I'm now looking for a plunger frame to go forward with my Bantam enthusiasm. So far I have Steampunk as a peculiar oddity, that can stay peculiar, and an engine D7. I think. Christmas if looming so if anyone feels generous... with any bits they wish to donate to my project I would graciously accept. Or if you just have anything for sale you think I might be interested in, do get in touch.

I actually like that, certainly interesting and in a crowd of bike's, I should imagine that would get loads of attention. But your only hope of registering that is on a Q plate, too many mods to be registered as a bantam.

Love your enthusiasm though
