Not one for the purists ... thoughts on V5C
« on: July 09, 2024, 02:28:44 PM »
My mate 'Dodgy-Roger' built this from an ST70 rolling chassis with NOVA cert..... deffo not one for the purists and typical of his 'don't give a f*ck take on everything, bless him  ;D

It's fitted with a new 50cc,12v electric start,  Lifan engine (he bought two Lifan 50cc motorbikes that NEVAL's in Hull brought in to evaluate from China ..one new and one with about 100 miles recorded .. Nevals were the shop in the 1970's who sold cheap Russian imported bikes.

The exhaust is genuine Honda standard ST70 NOS.

The frame number stamping is very clear and matches the NOVA certificate. But how about the fact it is highly modified and has an alternative Chinese engine. Will it have to be a 'Q' plate?

Looks like it depends on how many points it scores as to if its a Q plate or a period registration.
This link seems to be pretty informative I suspect it might manage 8 points or more.

Thanks Ted,

i am thinking he may have to refit the original forks & front wheel, in order to get an 8 points score. He does have the original parts still, albeit a bit grotty but good enough to submit for a dating certificate.
