Yup, age related number plate on an n.i. plate, our plates have a different format to yours, basically indecipherable, but the v5 says 1993 and motorcycle, dont see any errors, so not a tractor Very Happy

Thats good....so will we be expecting to see it in a Practical Sportsbike article soon then?
Always worth checking the V5...I've had random good and bad experiences....often they leave out the engine number coz it either doesnt fit or they cant be bothered to fill it in...once they got the colour wrong...I'd asked for "multicolor" as they dont list "tricolor"....they then reference that to a code number, enter that code and it produces the colour on the V5...only the DVLA Gov could come up with such a scheme.....listed the bike as "blue" so I phoned them and demanded a re-issue, they said new form and "colour change"...which made it sound like I had crashed it and had it re-painted....fortunately I had kept a copy of the form I submitted and then they realised it was their mistake and re-issued with the correct colour without it being a "change of colour"...........

Nothing surprises me about the dvla, just glad that l survived the experience.
Heard nothing further from practical sportsbikes so no idea if it will be a feature.

Hi Quikduk,
Unfortunately l didnt take much in the way of pics on assembly and solutions to problems l had, as the bike is fairly unique and didnt think it would be of much use on a Bimota forum or any forum for that matter. There can only be a few of these bikes about and practically everyone is different, be it engines, wheels, suspension, bodywork etc. Anyways it was a lovely sunny sunday today so took her for her first long spin to the coast, everything working sweetly, cant be many days left till winter arrives Sad

Waggy,

I get the weather bummer comment. It has been cold, windy and rainy here in "sunny" Southern California lately and any time the weather clears up, I can't ride due to prior obligations.

Maybe I'll have to call in...cough cough...sick. Wink
