Default Classic tax

After a bit of research, I got the right forms (RF111 - Change of Particulars, Motor Tax Renewal Form RF100A) and the reg cert and headed into the Dublin Motor Tax office to change the VF1000 over to vintage /veteran status for motor tax.

The wait time was about 6 minutes!

Got to the counter, told the chap the story and handed him the forms. All of 3 minutes later he hands me a tax disc for €26 for the year! New reg cert will be posted out with the new status.

Rock on!

Not sure why, but I thought it'd be a far more torturous process than that, but there you go.

Aye, 30 years it is, from the date of first registration, so you have to be careful.

Yeah, I thought it would be automatic too, but no such luck. It requires the forms and actually going into them (or post, but how long would that take?)

They'd happily still charge you full rate if you were not willing to make the change.

Still, with the forms and stuff, it was straightforward and quick.

To be honest, I was expecting to be met with a quizzical expression as if I had just asked him to turn base metal into gold. Pleasantly surprised.

No, you must declare it. Tax category then becomes VIN/VET

You have to be careful with the insurance companies. Some of them won't insure your bike as a classic unless you have a normal policy with them for another bike, and some will insure them separately but won't let you use the policy to accrue NCB.

I imported it from Germany so it had all of the TUV documentation and original log book.

The date of first registration was transferred to the new registration.

Came across that before, but that's for the CBX750F. This is a VF1000 - a horse of a different colour. Designation is SC-15. This is an FF, which had the 19" front and 17" rear. But I did a CBR wheel conversion so she runs modern rubber now on 17" rims. Pirelli Diablos.

a real beauty she is and a space ship of her time
Honda really pushed the boat with these models and the likes of the CB1100R just to list 2 back in the early 80's, proven track tech on a road bike.
