    I noticed when my old bike was re-vinned that they riveted the new VIN plate to the chassis in a very inconvenient spot. Is it "legal" to relocate that plate, or can they be attatched anywhere visable?

    Anywhere its attatched to the "chasis" of the vehicle. Ie the frame.

    You too huh? On my scooter they riveted it onto the main frame tube underneath, which probably seemed a good place but unfortunately the main tube is also the exhaust and contains a muffler, so if I want to remove it I'll have to drill the rivets out.

    This website may be of use as well. Has a few of the forms which need filling out including the one which you need to take to the police to sign.

    To date we have had a good response - could be another one or two - but this should give you good coverage.>>
    All these Certifiers are actually doing MOTORCYCLE certification - most have done a few this year. Alex Gee is the person focussed on Motorcycles.

    Alex is actually a LVVTA member too. All the others are Light Vehicle.>>

    I got a bike last week and was given us for free, so we had no ownership papers or anything. It had been de registered for at least 3 years. i just went into the aa and got a vehicle licnesing form, filled it out took it back in with proof of identity and they gave me 6 months rego and a new number plate. I thought it would be alot harder than that but it was really easy.

    Had the rego lapsed rather than being officially deregistered? How much did it cost?
    You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say will be quoted out of context, then used against you.

    Not convinced that's the best in Hamilton - they send you to some one else for a chassis check - but don't check axel, wheel alignment, forks, rims, triple clamps.......bla bla bla', this ends up costing you twice as much - pay for the report then for the certificate (for ticking a few boxes)

    Gil Tuffin can do them in Hamilton and does a proper job in house and completes the certificate same day $300 +GST ($337.50)
    He's on this site somewhere

    Is there a difference between a vehicle written off as uneconomical to repair and written off due to structural damage - as far as requiring a frame cert is concerned? Or will the bike just be listed as "insurance writeoff"?

    I have a bike which was written off "on sight" due to damaged front fender, false tank panel and exhaust being damaged - OEM parts = approx $5k, but very obvious no structural damage. I'm talking low speed drop, not a crash.

    where opinion holds more weight than fact.

    It's better to not pass and know that you could have than to pass and find out that you can't. Wait for the straight.

    AFAIK , no. If an insurance company deregister a bike, as a result of accident damage (not sure about stolen and recovered), the 'dead' rego is flagged as 'accident damaged' in the NZTA database. And to reregister it a frame cert will be required. Makes sense. Otherwise how do you know that a particular bike didn't suffer structural damage. OK, some may be obvious. But others, the assessor may list the cosmetic stuff, reckon that it ways exceeds the value so it will be a write off and not bother looking further for a slightly bent frame.

    That won't work. it's dereg'd becos it crashed. the easiest way to get it on the road is to kick it off the trailer. It'll be on the road then 9assuming you aprk the trailer in the proper place)
