the big question is what’s involved in sorting out the paperwork ??
an invoice from the inland revenue perhaps ??

If its got a customs release form and due to its age all you’d have to do is get
an mot stating the chassis number and book it in at your local dvla office and
pay the road tax when they issue an age related plate, I’ve registered a couple of imports.
Oops should point out that if it has been imported as ‘spares’ without the title document from the country of origin you would need to get a dating
certificate from an owners club recognized by the dvla, however this is unlikely in this case as customs tend to frown on imported bikes being
brought in whole for spares as they view it as a tax dodge unless you are a registered breaker.31st December 2007 at 3:13 am #6709AnonymousInactive
thank you sir,
but despite your positive reply , which should give anyone considering purchasing the bike confidence ….
i have just about had it with government agencies .
the years are correct on the v5c for both my 1978 b3 from the usa , and my 1979 b4 from canada .
how the import papers said 1974 when the first sales across the pond were late 1975 early 1976 beats me ?
i’m sure the issue could be sorted with the aid of various clubs , but i don’t think it would help the price ??

It depends to a large extent on the local office you use, I’ve registered a variety of oddballs (imports, trikes and chops etc.) and my local dvla office is
pretty helpful, had dealings with a couple of other offices and they were a bunch of miserable cxxts.31st December 2007 at 10:47 am #6707speedyParticipant
😆 as long as you have a recipt from the bike shop you buy it from their is no problem if not you need the custom papers to register it the rules on duty are it must be more than ten years old and have more than 10,000 miles on the clock it has to have an MOT (with chassis number on) and a letter from Kawasaki house confirming the model cost ?15.00 then a registration pack which you get from a local DVLA office it cost ?19 for the log book and you have to pay for 12 months tax
