Up for sale today is this XV500 Brat style cafe racer project it comes with 1 key but no v5 as its not currently UK registered. Registering it is fairly simple and straightforward, I spoke to DVLA today and they confirmed they will need proof of age (from Yamaha or an owners club) and a declaration that it is complete and working before issuing a registration number. I have also spoken to NOVA they have confirmed there is no duty to pay and a Nova certificate will be free of charge.
As you can see it is a bit of an unfinished (ok barely started!) project, tank, seat and subframe etc are just mocked up to get an idea of lines, wiring is mostly not connected up but is all there. with power to the starter the engine turns over fine but obviously doesn’t start due to wiring. There’s a box with a few other bits and bobs to go with it too.
Definitely has potential to be a pretty cool looking machine, all the major components are there and the basic lines are good it just needs someone with the imagination and time to complete it!
