Looking for HELP / Advice .....
« on: May 25, 2022, 09:11:44 PM »
Hello All,

I'm new here So Hello again and thank you for letting me join.....

Just a bit about me ,I've got my hands on around 20ish bikes (some in bits and pieces ) prob many parts etc aswell, Slowly going through what I have .....All 70's/80's as far as I can tell at mo ! trying to get all paperwork in order is my 1st mission , then get them running if pos !!some pretty straight forward but am struggling with 1 ....

So looking for help on this one ... 1 of them is 1974 CB 550 imported from the U.S and the only paperwork I have is the Nova cert ! Everything I've tried so far comes up blank !

Does anyone know how I can register this bike to me here (UK)  The V55 form is not the way forward on this one I've found out ...

Any Advice would be great

Thanks

It needs to be complete and preferably running as dvla may want to inspect the bike.
The V55 is the way but with a dating letter from VJMC and the required funds, as it is over 40 years old no mot and tax

Type in “How to fill in a V55/5 Form” in utube. You can’t go wrong. Definitely use VJMC, but the bike will need to substantially complete for them to authenticate your machine.
