MFK test for old bikes

well not really a bike, a lambretta, 44 years old - is the mfk test as stringent - i ask because I have modifed it (engine only) to enable it to keep up with the newer machines/modern traffic - ie bigger barrel, big bore exhaust (but looks standard juts a little louder - marginally), non standard carb and airfilter set up - but it's fully panelled and looks standard from the outside

Also if this is going to be an issue anyone know of a company that will insure it for 6 months whilst it stays on it's UK plates

cheers

Re: MFK test for old bikes

you may not be able to import it. Therefore MFK may be a non-issue.

best contact your local STVA in my opinion.

I got one of these, a 1956 type D, 125cc, great fun.

Yes the test is as stringent but what they can't see....be careful on insurance though. You should be able to get a"old timer" stamp on the MFK providing the vehicle is essentially standard which means MFK only every 5 or 7 years
