Please let me take a moment to introduce myself.
My name is Kenny and I am a Scotsman of moderate years living in Newcastle upon Tyne. Just over a week ago, I became the proud custodian (owner) of a 1974 Ducati GT 750, sympathetically restored maintaining all its authenticity! I remember this bike in this colour in a set of trump cards, when I was a child!!
Its not my first Ducati and it probably won’t be my last!!
So in fact, the bike is still in transit from Italy, due to arrive in about another week and I am about to embark upon a NOVA, so I can register it with the DVLA and obtain an age-related number and have it taxed.
Of course, I will have to have it MOT’d and change the km/h speedo!
Any advice on any of this?
I see feked.com sell a Veglia Borletti “Type” (replica MPH speedo) for a T140
and so wondered if anyone had gone down that route before securing the real deal in the future on fleabay or somewhere.
Also, the bike was manufactured 1974, however, was not registered until 1976 - so in what year will it be registered by the DVLA here in blighty?
I would say 1974…?
I have received the NOVA forms today:
- V55/5 (V355/5 explains how to fill in the V55/5 [BADLY])
- V149 &
- Useless Leaflets
Interested to hear of any advice.
I have requested a Dating Certificate from the DOC GB and sent through some photos of the Frame and Engine numbers, but heard nothing so far. I am sure a reply will be imminent.
Thanks for the opportunity to introduce myself!
