For my trike it was originally a 1985 US Max, reg book for bike had 1992 import date, was MSVAed as trike in Jan 2004. Failed then due to lack of hazards (oh, and exhaust too loud
) - the fecking MSVA manual my trike builder had did *NOT* mention that hazards were a requirement - the test centre were kind enough to photocopy the "missing" pages.
For 2nd MSVA hazards were fitted with audio warning (reversing type buzzer). On/off switch hidden out of sight to stop some fecking kids running the battery down.....
Went for MOT end of last year - MOT people never even asked whether hazard were fitted let alone wanted to test them...

Trike is over 450kg (470 from memory), MSVAed and MOTed fine without fog lights. Also don't remember what class its under but don't think its class 4.
