GET IN ! Archies little ped the mighty 'Viking Nik Nik' has FINALLY rode through the last flaming hoop of tests an paperwork today and been awarded a nice new reg plate and tax disc, got the insurance an every thing now so I'm off for a ride.
I will say when I started this project I didnt really know if Id do it or not, had a bit (lot) of a fear about DVLA an MSVA process and just went ahead in my own bumbling way, all along the process everyone involved from those departments has been really helpfull an keen to help and I cant fault them at all, to everyone that helped....Cheers !
There now, done.
Now for something a little bigger




There ya go Nick, for you mate.

Good news! Like I said before I wonder how many of us here in the States would have built our bike if we had as many laws and inspections to pass.

Shame you got ripped off so much to ride a moped/motor bicycle, but we celebrate your tenacity and dedication.

Nice one, now it's down to me to get backside in gear and do mine.

With the "vintage" style of what you've got, have you thought about mailshotting theatrical props suppliers with a "1920s+-" bike for hire?

You could always get something really vintage replica and legal, and some tweeds to earn some cash as an extra as well.
