Go to your local VMCC meeting and ask around as there are a number of testing stations that know old bikes – avoid the sort of place that only sells brand new ‘crotch rockets’. However, recently some of the older ones have dropped out as the latest tests need fancy new equipmnet and some people have just not bothered to spend the money on it (and it does not apply to a classic bike as they are too old).

I got my MOT done locally in Bucks so if you really have trouble finding a place (which I doubt) and want to trailer, or ride, it over from Hitchen, then I can give you a name.

Don’t get too worried about the noise, that the way they were, and the brakes have never been great. You just need someone who recognises this.

Good luck,
