Hi
Does anyone know what bikes the headlight and speedo were from on a SB7 ?
I think I need to convert the bike to uk spec to register it

Funny you should ask as I recently posted the same question as the headlight bulb holderss on mine had both broken! This is what youíre after, though you will need to remove the top two lugs otherwise everything is identical and Iíve just had the same fitted to my SB7. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/APRILIA-DOUBLE-HEADLIGHT-FOR-AF1-50/142170707854?hash=item211a08d78e:g:YCcAAMXQdm5Q-w26

Iím not sure about the speed/Rev counter (someone else will no doubt know). If youíe not fussy about the actual make then there are plenty of alternative electronic ones out there and Iíve seen several types fitted to SB6ís. I also have a Motogadget unit on my SB7 due to the fact that I have Marchesini wheels fitted so no normal drive for the speedo.

Dont worry about the speedo... The need for mph being displayed is only for new vehicles and msva tests....vehicles over 10 years old can be in kms...trust me...it only needs an mot to register...and a speedo.... Working or not... In mph or kms...or even on a bike is not needed for an mot...
Its only illegal to speed... Not to not have a speedo... Check your headlights dont kick up to the right...thats an mot fail....sticky tape on lens is acceptable for bikes over 10 years old...even insurance is not necessary now to apply for a v5....have you done the nova???paid tax on import?.. You've bought from Switzerland which is outside of eu...so import duty and vat would be due on import...

I had to pay the vat at customs and have got a mot. I have been struggling with insurance so it would be better if I can get a v5 without it.

Yeh...used to be you had to insure it to register it...but now not the case...try foitman james for classic insurance for bikes over 15years old...they'll insure for 30 days off the frame number...then hopefully v5 has arrived and you phone to give the reg number and they alter cover for no extra charge...
