looking for past bikes

#1 Post by fastbob » Sun Jan 14, 2018 2:39 pm

Would I be breaking any rules on this forum or in the wider world if I were to post a few pics and registration numbers of bikes I used to own in the hope of discovering what became of them ? I know they still exist because I have already done a tax and mot check.

Well yes that's true but I was more concerned about the publication of other peoples registrations online. I've got some pictures but I reckon some of these bikes may have been altered by now. For example my Triumph TR25W 250cc single is now registered as a 750 so someone has shoe horned a Triumph Twin engine into it . I bet it looks cool too .

Personally I wouldn't want other people's reg numbers just randomly posted without the owners permission

Or the plate was relevant to their name and transferred it

Nah, I caught a fleeting glimpse of it once , it definitely was a 250 Trophy with a Triumph twin motor in it .
