Roger here. I am conscious that folks are waiting too long for their engines and so I must try and concentrate on this rather than side issues. I have a customer in Italy who has a Scott for which I rebuilt the engine and Eddie Shermer did the transmission. He can not get it registered for the road in Italy without he has some documentation.
Is there anyone who, given the frame and engine number, has the time to chase up history and inquire how to get a UK number, or the details required by the Italian registration authorities. The owner is a very fair man and will be quite happy to pay for the time taken to investigate. email@example.com 01664 840215
Both require the motorcycle to be in the UK to obtain an MOT and from my past experiences you will also have to take it to a local office for inspection.
There are of course many less kosher ways hence the increase in trade of old tax discs at autojumbles, and even more daring do I’ve heard of such as doctoring the archive records at the DVLA office to match your frame number….
I guess the question is – what do the Italian authorites require?
Thanks Richard. you are correct. I have already asked the owner to find out the information needed by the Italian registration authorities.
The bike is on club records so I have asked Ian Parsons if he has record of the Reg No when in UK, if he is allowed to divulge this.
Any idea of past owners would then be good R
