Hello Zed1,
I used Terry Lane-Smith of The Old Italian Bike Register. He is authorised by D.V.L.A. and found him to provide a good service.
Either contact by email- tlanesmith@yahoo.com
by phone- 02380 445029 or 07493 050389
Paul.

NLM may be gone but Chris Mayhew is still there and trading as Lusso Veloce. He has done a dating certificate for me this year so well worth you giving him a ring.

I have a similar question; I have someone interested from the UK in buying a 3 1/2 I have for sale (with full Dutch registration) but the bike has no engine number. Is this really necessary to get the bike registered in the UK?
I imported it from Italy where I've never seen an engine number, only exportbikes had engine numbers for as far as I know :/

No it isn't really a problem here. I've seen them registered with the notation 'engine number not found' and also with the frame number used when no number is stamped on the cases.
Also in this months ATG is a reminder from Stuart Mayhew that you can still get your Morini dated by him at Ellistown!

The frame number is the important one for the DVLA, the engine number is just a nice little extra. As so many other makes of bikes had the frame and engine numbers matching it doesn't ring any alarm bells in Swansea when you apply if you quote the engine number as matching the frame.
