So what did you have to do to make your WR road legal for the streets then?

The one I'm looking at needs a few bits doing.

Ta in advance. :cry:

All you legally need are

1. switches on the brakes for brake light. Look at http://www.h-e-l.co.uk

2. Megahorn from halfords

3. bicycle speedo

I wired up indicators as well. Mirrors are hopeless.

Is the bike more than three years old?

Is it an import?

Bike is UK spec

2001 year, just needs an MOT, its road Reg'd....

What does that mean exactly???
"Road Reg'd" what does it have over a "non road reg'd" WR??

For the MOT the guys is sticking most of those parts you mentioned on there for me.

S :cry:

Road reg`d means it has a log book and therefore a numberplate :cry:

Registering bikes can be a real pain. Mine was an import, so i had to get a form from customs and excise and bring it in to the dvla for them to inspect it. The import poeple were being jerks about single vehicle approval despite the exemption for enduro bikes. I had to write a cover letter saying i wouldnt ride it on the road, but then they gave me a plate and V5. Needless to say, i ride it on the road. I know refer to speed bumps as 'whoops'.
