    You don't have to get bikes checked by VOSA when modified like you do with cars then ?

    I've always wanted to ask how you get insurance sorted on custom bikes ?
     
  9. Hi Peanut - It stilll had its MOT from when I bought the bike in its original form last year :)
    VOSA applies if its got new chassis / engine numbers etc like a Kit car as it is classed as a comletely new build.. I had to get the Caterham I built checked. Whereas the bike is a modification - I dont believe there is a requirement to get them checked.
    As for Insurance - just told them Id hartailed the frame, changed the tank etc etc and they said ok. It helps to use a specialist broker as opposed to the confused.com lot as they dont have a clue if it doesnt come up on their screens
