registering a stable find no number plate but frame and engine numbers
Permalink  
 


I have been given a complete bike late 1970's that has been stored in an old stable for over 20+ years I would like to get it on the road or at least find out more information about it It Has frame number and engine number that match but I have no other documentation and no number plate etc. It seems I may have to use Form V62? that does require a registration number Wonder if anyone has had the same problem Many thanks for any information. Chris

Hi Chris

I am not an expert but I think you have quite a bit of work to do if you have no registration.

You probably need a dating certificate from a Club or Yamaha firstly and then, to get an age-related plate (rather than a Q plate) you will have to build the bike up and get it MOTd.

At least that's what I had to do with my mates Bantam which had been allowed to fall off the DVLA records.

A bit of Googling will help.

Let us know how you get on.

Brian

Hi Brian

Many thanks.

I thought I might have to do as you suggest but good to know I'm on the right track.

At least the bike is complete and I have the frame and engine number so that's a start.

I will enjoy getting it all started and MOT is not going to be a problem.

Problem will be working on it as my better half doesn't yet know its my sixth bike and she is not exactly a bike lover!

I will definitely let you know my progress

Chris

The annoying thing is that the DVLA could tell you the original registration mumber by searching their database on the frame number no

I re-imported some TTRs from Spain many years ago and the local DVLA office would tell me the registration number from the frame number which then meant I only had to apply for a replacement V5.

After I had sorted nearly all of them, they decided they couldn't give me the regnos "because of the Data Protection Act" evileye  However, there was one friendly counter clerk that would do it. I would slip her a bit of paper with the frame number and she would slip it back under the glass with the original regno wink

And then the DVLA closed all their local offices and we know how well things don't work now disbelief

PS photos are always good biggrin

Chris, if you are not totally sure of the bikes origin it might be an idea to email the engine and frame number to your local police HQ and ask them to check if it is recorded as stolen or if there are any other markers on it before you invest any time or money into it. They should do this for you.
