Paper work sent off to the DVLA, should be interesting to see how long it takes.

I found out you don't have to insure it first to apply for a V5 . Not sure when this changed.

Things are moving in the right direction , The DVLA want the bike inspected and i have arranged this for Friday the 30th. Still waiting for the fork seals from Crooks, going to give them a call today and cancel the order.

We updated the registration section a couple of months ago to reflect the changes. It is still required in Northern Ireland. I would always recommend having it insured in any case. 

Current bikes......1958 D5,  and a 76 Honda C90 in the workshop.

The V5 arrived only took seven weeks from the date I sent off the stuff to the DVLA. Got my number plate made up at the local MC shop and have been riding it a lot to iron out a few issues. Still have one that is bugging me.

The bike starts up and runs except for the top of the rev range up to 6K rpm no issues what so ever, but the last bit it just dies, ive tried changing the needle position but this makes it worse, cleaned and cleaned the carb out.

Hi, 

Roughly speaking the needle is for the mid-range. Last 1/4 of the throttle is the main jet. So it's whether it's weak, or bogging because it's too rich. Other option is the points and ignition aren't quite right. Plug chop on full throttle, but don't risk it if you're not sure whether it's running lean. Hard to tell if you're not there hearing it. 

Cheers Col

BSA Bantam D10 so so near, and moved up the list again. FB Falcon 87 reg number applied for. Ariel Arrow now on the go! MZ125 running, Royal Enfield Classic love it, campervan done to tow some of the above! 1.5 Velo LE in bits!

Thank you, I had a air leak at the point where the carb joins onto the barrel, this has help a bit, went to ride it today and the front brake lever snapped in two. so all work stopped until new one arrives .

Been using it for a little while now. Even took it greenlaning,  no complaints. 

The speedo broke, the needle for the rev counter feel off and I found out the the so called petrol safe clear coat didn't do the job.  

And finally the fork seals and dust guards have arrived. 

All in all I'm very pleased with the bike.
