Scoots and scootering / 40 yr MOT exemption
« on: October 29, 2018, 01:27:34 PM »
Hello all. So finally have my first road going scooter since 1989, a 1965 LI125 with 200cc Gori upgrade, 12v electrics, 26 mm dellorto and Franspeed exhaust. According to the MOT exemption rules nothing considered as substantial changes. I have been to post office today to re-tax the scooter and as it is an historic tax class on logbook no tax to pay. However when I tried to declare the scooter as ineligble for MOT, the clerk stated that I needed to send the form V112 direct to DVLA. This seems to fly in the face of online advice and that it should be done at the point you re-tax the vehicle. Any ideas what you need to do? Cheers

Bought my first blazer from these guys, and arrived yesterday. Very nice blazer, with all the Ivy touches. Although I am not a huge Ivy fan (I feel sometimes it can look slightly sloppy) there are parts I do like. If you don't know these people they have a facebook page. I bought the Olive patchpocket blazer, and at a good price. Well worth a look. I think the Seersucker will be next purchase ;)

Scoots and scootering / Spanish Scooters

Hello all. Has anyone got much experience of the Motovespa variants made in Spain, particularly models from mid 1960s to early 1970s. I am interested in their quality compared to their Italian brethren and how interchangeable parts are with their Italian equivalents. Thanks
