17 digit VIN numbers are for modern bikes. You may have a 4L0-******. Sometimes the DVLA ignore the - and you may get a negative result, this happens a lot.
A photo of the VIN number is not neccessary. All you need to do is contact our dating officer here with your chassis number and he can do the rest. With any luck he will be able to issue you with the original reg no.

Hi, I emailed dating officer about 3 days ago about some question reguarding registration of an RD how long does it normally take for reply?

I emailed dating.officer@aircooledrdclub.org.uk

Do I have to be a paid up member to get reply? or have I sent to wrong email address?

Thanks.

many many thanks to Paul for his great handling and speedy issue of a Dating Certificate for my latest project (an imported RD400 frame)

and thanks to the Aircooled RD Club for having this great facility and enabling another Rd to become a roadgoing bike!
I wouldn't join any club that would have me as a member...

So if i had the frame and engine numbers for a bike i recently bought but no v5 would i get the original registration from the seventies eventually or a new age related plate, providing the frame and engine numbers match of course?? Would this cost the £12 for club + £55 to the DVLA. {looking at a 400 local to me which is a jigsaw, that is as described above and trying to gauge how much paperwork would cost to reg it}

OK
First thing you must do is see it it is registered with DVLA.
I can arrange a DVLA check for £5.,

If it is then it will cost you £25 to apply for a new V5.

If it is not then you must apply for a age related registration number.
This will cost £12.50 for a dating certifcate as your a club member, plus £55 first registraion fee, road tax, MOT on the frame number and insurance will be needed before DVLA will register the bike.

So thebike will need to be roadworthy before you do this.

So the DVLA match the engine and frame numbers to a registration if they have it in their records? Am i correct in thinking the frame and engine numbers should match, then it's fairly straight forward [providing it's in the DVLA records] if not it's the longer and more expensive route?

Surely to insure a motor vehicle you need to give the insurance company the registration number before they would insure it but that would not be possible in the second [longer] route would it not?? A sorta catch 22?

Thanks for this info Paul.

Engine number is not important, its the frame number that counts and thats what thge DVLA check will be looking for.

You can insure and MOT the bike on the frame number, most insurance companys will give you 30 days to register the bike.
