my new project for hopeful completion early next year will be GS600, a smaller version of my GS1157 build but for Avril to ride.
it will be a GS750 frame, tank and bodywork with a bandit 6 motor, but looking into doing a monoshock rear end.
watch this space :rock:

At least show us a pile of parts. What a tease. :)

yesterday i phoned DVLA to try and find out if the VIN number on the US import frame i have is on
Their Database.
Well as you can expect from the DVLA the answer wasnt forthcoming!!! I was told that they wont give out information over the phone.
I explained to the dvla rep that all i wanted to know was if it was on the system!
tried to explain what had happened with my last build and that i wasnt wanting to have to jump through all the "hoops" again.
he went off to talk to his "supervisor"
came back and said "you will need to write a letter with all the details of what you are wanting and send it to KITS & REBUILDS and they would get back to me within four wheeks.
I said that it was exactly them i was trying to avoid, after all the hassles i had with them last time.
So i have made the decision to short cut that bunch of tossers, I will now send my V5 dock for my other frame away for a "change of frame" and see what comes back! bet i will get a quicker answer than writing to the wankers at K&R.

here in the usa we can do whatever the fuck we want.

That sounds like an assload of trouble
The "worst" requirement we have in my area ( IMO ) is the fact that you gotta have front blinkers if you have rear blinkers. Can't just have one or the other. Which sucks, because I always want rears, but never want fronts. :(

Hell, I don't even get mine inspected annually. Tags, insurance, gas and go...

Good luck, Steve. Sounds like a pain for sure.

BUT, and this is a BIG but, as i have found out in the past, they never seem to do the same things twice, even when given the same details/information as before!!!
so there is only one thing for it, send for a change of Frame No, sit back and wait for the shit storm :oops:

I sent in my Ducati V5 with a change of engine number about 2 weeks ago.... radio silence so far, the fun you've had with the DVLA has had me worried. Holding thumbs for us both!
