Trying to Register My 1978 Honda XL250 in the UK
I am at my wits end! I have been trying to register my 1978 Honda XL250 in the UK for close to nine months and have hit a brick wall. The bike was a farm bike that was restored to green lane trim by the previous owner. The problem I have is that I am being asked to prove that the bike is not an import by the HRMC. The DVLA records only go back five years so they can’t help. Honda UK were of no help whatsoever, they wouldn’t even provide a dating certificate. VJMC were great and provided a certificate very quickly. How can I find out, and then show HRMC wether or not the bike is an import. Until I know either way I am stuck. I don’t have a problem paying duty if required to do so but I have to have some proof one way or another. Any suggestions?
