Default Bolt on back ends?

Anyone care to enlighten me?

Came across a chap with a Harley trike that was bolt on hardtailed.Had a chat on the exotic Narborogh road and he set me thinkin' big time.

He said that it was a case of informing local vehicle licence office,mot and weighbridge chitty-can it still be that easy?

Poised with bender/welder if it is!!

Your thoughts genulfolk??

If the modification is not pernement and is detachable then yes you just need to tell the dvla, I think they may need to see the vehicle to confirm that the chasis itself is unaltered. but trikes are/were marketed on this basis. the same would apply to hardtails I think. Read the wot ave I let myself into? thread, I think it refers to this................

I had to provide reciepts and a engineers report stating what materials/parts were used and reciepts from their source. You cant swap back at whim, unlike one that was advertised recently as not needed to be DVLA regd as you could switch back within 2 hrs, thats bollocks. Weighbridge ticket Mot then off to DVLA, then they change logbook and you pay for the road tax.

sorry ,but now im confused.
i was under the impression that if i say had a trike rear end whlch was swapable ,ie swingarm ....blah..as long as it is swapable i dont need to notify anyone,only because its not a permanent change and doesnt modify thr chassis...
i take it im wrong then?
