To say "it's been a challenge" is an understatment but there is now light at the end of the tunnel,still,would be nice to have a bit of history attached to it.

HAve you done the DVLA history request? Form V888.  You get copies of every V5 (or whatever they used to be called) from new.  I have them for both of my RD's and it's certainly a good start to find out where the bike has been.
