Finding the frame number
I am an engineering ex-biker, who in my youth owned and tinkered with many bikes, from commuter singles up to big Jap race reps. However, I remain a biker at heart and have really missed having one but realise that at my age I would soon kill myself on a modern sports bike and they don’t really ‘do it’ for me anymore. So recently, when spotted a restoration project Bonnie I got to thinking that I could indulge both my passion for bringing old stuff back to good as new and at the end of it, have a bike to ride around the local country lanes. So, the bike I am looking at was registered on 28th June It is a US Import peanut tank and high bars with matching numbers and showing only 11, miles on the odometer, although there is no paperwork to confirm whether this is correct. The bike is complete and the engine turns over and it is a good restoration candidate. I have been reading up about Bonnies for some time as I always thought it would be a good classic to own so I have a reasonable knowledge but this bike has me a little confused.

Classic Super Bikes Fleet, Hampshire. Restored and rebuilt by an experienced marque specialist in Sweden and still requiring some running in, it’s excellent in all regards except for the left silencer which has been damaged by a battery acid leak. Still awaiting workshop appraisal here, after which a video will be added, but we are reliably assured it runs faultlessly and the restoration work looks to be of a high standard.

Dating info from the BSA owners club show it was manufactured in January
Well there is still a chance that your car was built in the previous year, and DVLA accommodate this situation also. DVLA will accept a dating certificate from BMIHT Gaydon, which shows the actual date of manufacture from the archived Rover production records as evidence that the car was made in the previous year. You as the vehicle owner would have to gather this evidence yourself and send it to them as proof.

Services to Members More about what we do for members. The Club provides a number of services to its members, the most popular being the Triumph Motorcycle Dating Service, and the Club Archives. If you have an old Triumph motorcycle that has never been registered, or one that the DVLA do not have any records for, and you wish to retain the original or obtain an age-related registration number plate then you need this service.
Back in , the DVLA started computerising vehicle registrations. Before then registrations were carried out by County Councils or Borough Councils, but Centralised Registration pulled all these records together onto a computerised system. Of course, many registrations were lost or not transfered by the various councils, and when all the old records had finally been entered by about there were still many vehicles that were not on the new register.
To apply for a Date Certificate for your Triumph motorcycle you need to get together as much documentation about your machine as possible, and as many photos as you can get your hands on. As a minimum you should have photos of both sides of the bike, the Engine Number, and the Frame Number. If you have any original Bills of Sale or Service documents then this will make the job much easier. In fact, any dated information you can supply on your machine will make your case that much stronger.
Once you have got all your evidence you need to send it to the Club’s Machine Registrar along with your payment. Cheques payable to ‘Triumph Owners M. After obtaining your Dating Certificate, you can send it along with the appropriate forms to the DVLA to obtain your authorisation to use the original registration number.
More information about registering your motorcycle can be obtained from the Gov.

What do the initials mean? RF60 or VE60 — the old style buff or green card log books phased out in the s when vehicle records were computerised. RF60 log books were still being issued several years after the Road Fund ceased to exist. Nowadays, the correct name for the amount payable for a tax disc is Vehicle Excise Duty.

TRW Triumph had plans for a military twin during the Second World War but one of our current EU partners had a different idea namely the Coventry Blitz which, among its many victims, included the Triumph motorcycle factory. Even after this pasting, Triumph did succeed in building a prototype 5TW model which used the crankshaft, rods and flywheels from the pre-war 5T Twin, matched to a twin-cylinder side-valve top end.
The rest of the machine was stock Triumph rigid apart from a new-for-Triumph telescopic front fork. Only the one prototype was built but following a request from the military, the design was revived post-war as the basis for the new TRW, and eventually a modified design which used many components from the civilian machines went into production.
This proved to be just what the military were looking for, to the extent that they were still being built as late as for military duty around the world. Stable, dependable and mild mannered, the TRW quickly won favour with the Royal Corps of Signals display team, whose highly trained riders used it to great effect at shows and tattoos doing a variety of stunts, jumps, and formation displays.

Easter Sunday The base is divided into six sites and a bus is used to go from one site to the other. When we first arrived at Burtonwood, we were placed in Site 3. I will ride over in the base bus. Last Friday night the Communists came on the base and caused half-million dollars of damage. They ran 20 trucks head-on into each other.
Got my fingers crossed! Looks like good food again at the chow-hall for our Easter Dinner. The alert went off and we went off. Frank and I took position together guarding a ditch through the field up to the base headquarters. After covering over yards on our hands and stomachs, we spotted them coming up a road in jeeps putting up a smokescreen for a small troop of men following on foot.
Frank and I hid by the side of the ditch letting the truck go by, for around the corner was one of our trucks with a. Frank shot one man and I moved up 25 yards and shot another one. We went back and reported seeing 30 men, jeeps and cycles to an officer who then put us in charge of a flight on men to go back and engage. On our way back the alert was called over.

Riders Reports BSA made more than , Bantams over the years – yes, wasn’t the British motorcycle industry big not so many years ago. Compare that to all the cries of joy when the new Triumph company shifts bikes in a year. Not that you’d believe the past achievements from the number of Bantams still left on the road, a crying shame to my way of thinking. In recent years, except for my hard working D , the only one I’ve see is an early version with rigid rear end and L-plates!
The fellow had the audacity to fit long forks and paint it bright pink! I dare say there’s an owners’ club somewhere but the last time I joined an organisation the Boy Scouts still stood for youth and innocence.
Owners club for Famous James Motorcycles. The ultimate aim is to get recognition of the club and the register, and for the DVLA to accept dating certificates like they do for other more established clubs – but we are a long way off from achieving that I fear. I do not know what the situation is with John.
Thu Oct 08, 9: I take it that all vehicles that are registered or unregistered that are sold requires a “Log book” which it appears that the book requires the logging of the previous owners of the vehicle, change of engine number etc. There are no “log Books ” in Oz except for the reporting of the activities of heavy vehicle drivers not the vehicle. Vehicles are supplied with a service record book and is only good for the warranty of the vehicle, its nice to be able to follow the history of the vehicle if the owners keep up after warranty.
When I register my 58 Hillman Estate all I need is a Roadworthy Certificate issued from a local service station which is approved to issue them as to the safety of the vehicle, the engine number and chassis number. Fill in the form at the Dept of Transport providing your identification drivers Licence estimated value of the vehicle by yourself for Sales tax and your registered. If you dont have those numbers they will issue new ones for you.

This is so in point of size alone. On the town’s one thousand and seventy-five acres some eighteen thousand people live — thus making the little town by the sea one of the more important of the State. Winthrop, is a beautiful town. Its location between the Atlantic Ocean on the East and Boston Harbor on the West is alone enough to establish the fact. Even more, Winthrop is a town of gentle hills which, although now built over with about 4, houses, gives almost every window a wide prospect over miles of ocean, marsh and a city just far enough away to be remote and yet near enough to be conveniently reached within a half-hour or so.
Probably one of the greatest factors concerned in the production of Winthrop’s charms are the many elms and maples lining her 36 miles of streets and shading most of her homes and all her public buildings.

Here’s a gadget that all bikers ought to have. We haven’t tested it yet , and the press release didn’t specify if it’s new. But what the hell? It’s worth a second airing even if it’s been around the block. This device is 91mm long, and weighs 85 grams and is waterproof to 20 metres. So if you accidentally ride your bike into the canal, your loved ones will be sure to catch your last gasps. We’ve got a helmet cam of our own and use it all the time, and we recommend them, in principle.
But not all helmet cams are very convenient. This one looks better than most and captures high definition video at x pixels, and that’s about as good as it gets with available technology. It records, we’re told. But it will also operate at 60 frames per second fps at a lower resolution of x pixels. Yes, it’s got audio, most of which will probably be windblasted on the move, and you can take snaps at 12 megapixels. All importantly and unlike some mini-cameras it’s got a degree wide angle lens.
