Default Custom Bike Insurance.

OK i may have asked this before in another thread, but i am just in the prosess of picking my bottom jaw off the deck.

Just spoken with Carole Nash about insuring the Trident, and because its got a hard tail frame they want to charge me 260 for it !!!

I used to insure my past bikes with them, and the last one, a very well modified Z650 cost me just 60, OK it was back in 2001 but over four times as much in 16 years!

I did run an on line quote as a classic and got 120, makes no sence, if it was 10 years older it would have a hard tail as std.

Its a joke as my car insurance is just 230 with the misses as a learner on there, i used to build, tune a drive mad fast Japanese turbo cars and never paid more than 500 for them!

OK fair enough i don't have any current NCB on a bike, but i have been riding bikes since i was 15, surely experience should count for something.

Rant over!

So my question is who are you insuring your custom bikes with, and what sort of premium are you paying?

Not insured a custom for a while and when I did I used Carole Nash but Peter James might insure it as it's a classic. You get to speak to proper people so probs worth a call?

I use eBike, they also do a classic policy but you don't get any no claims on that.

In the end Flux did me a good deal, first try with the underwriters got a premium of 220, to which i replied way too much, so i was then asked what i thought i wanted to pay and told them that 150-160 would be just acceptable, so they came back with 165 and 14 days money back guarantee or a match should i find anyone cheaper...they sound quite confident that i wont, so not too bad since i have no no claims bonus.

Just done a quote for my Bonnie chop with eBike on a classic policy with a list of modifications declared and a mileage limit of 1500 annually as I don't get out much now with work and family stuff.

106 fully comp.
