Anybody got any experience of going about registering a rebuilt classic? Does it matter if it's not 100% original? Been looking at DVLA and as usual, about as clear as mud!!
Cheers

Read The Vintage Motor Cycle Club - Library and DVLA Forms and Triumph Owners Club Services to Members then decide which club you want to use - afaik it will need to be one of those two for the DVLA accepted Dating Certificate - to help you get either the original registration or an age-related one.

Does it matter if it's not 100% original?
It does have at least to look basically original - raked frame, 15-over forks, CB750 engine are all no-no. However, pick your club (note you don't actually have to join, but it is cheaper if you do), send them the required photos, the club person will tell you whether or not the bike is "original" enough they can issue a Dating Certificate.

Hi Nidge
It would appear that if you have the US title then it is indeed plain sailing, If you don't, it could be a lottery as to how easy it is to get a V5c. Talking to a dealer Saturday and he said around 9 bikes he got registered with no issues at all, however, another one they refuse to accept until it is fully restored with authentication letter etc. Was a Guzzi 2 stroke which I never knew even existed

Yes i did have the original title, But dvla sent me back a log book for a triumph herald car needless to say after a phone call it was corrected.

Not sure, its a year since i did mine took about six weeks, due to the backlog created by the lockdown.
