    I have a 1962 greeves that is about to be put on the road so will be MOT'd etc.

    I would LIKE to get the number swapped to the motor home but keep the Greeves road legal too

    I 'think' this is possible and the DVLA will issue an age related plate to the Greeves ?

    Any one help with info as to viability and costs ?

    It's a standard procedure to do it. I believe that the cost is the standard transfer fee (£85 ????????) for each vehicle.

    Did the same with the number on my merc SLK, you put the number you want to transfer from your bike on a retention certificate, apply the replacement number to the bike, then using the retention certificate re register you Moho just make sure your name is on both v5's - don't ask

    Don't need to put anything on retention if you already own the vehicle you want the number to end up on. It can all be done in one go.

    Even with an old plate I'm pretty sure you have to comply with modern day colour scheme unless the recipient vehicle was manufactured pre sept 1972

    Yep you do. If you come across a bored Plod you will get a bollocking/ticket depending on how bored they are if you have a black and silver plate on a new vehicle.

    My first ever bike was a 1962 Greeves 25DC with a Villiers 2T engine, loved that old bike, don't suppose it is still in use now, SVG 879, where are you?.

    More likely to be an extra hit if caught offending or by ANPR cameras

    yes, as said, unless the recipient vehicle also predates the new plate laws it has to have proper yellow and white ones fitted

    More or less the same bike then !
    This one has been accredited as an ISDST jobby ( ex works ) .. its registration number is currently XFF 327

    And I have just noticed a cock up in the log book !
    It states it is an 'historic vehicle' but says it was first registered in 1982 not 1962 !!
    But given the reg number etc I somehow doubt the DVLA will have much trouble sorting it out ! :) ( Heres hoping any way !!! )

    In 1982 aug 1st was the 1st day of the new registration year.

    DVLC, as was, probably updated their records that year.....or maybe it was just a cock up on their part....(most likely the latter)

    Just dug up a letter
    It concerns this..
    the year of manufacture is correct and it was first road registered in 1982 !
    The number plate was issued against the receipt by the DVLC of a certificate of manufacture by the Greeves owners club ( as was, back in the day )

    Just read right through the application form notes and it always states 'vehicle'. There does not seem to be any restriction as to what type

    Equally though, there is no mention of a new age related number being issued to the donor vehicle ?
