Compliance plate intro date

Discussion in 'Politics, Laws, Government & Insurance' started by commanda, Sep 23, 2006.

  1. Can someone please clarify for me exactly when compliance plates started being attached to motorbikes in Australia. Delivered new in Australia, not grey imports.

    I'm looking at a couple of old XS650's for restoration. Seller claims one is a 68/69 (they weren't even made until 1970) and the other as a 1976 frame.

  2. Give me a day, I know some one that should know. I doubt my paper work will state it's introduction date but I'll see what I can find out for ya!

    edit~The earliest adr I can find out about is 1972, prior to that I don't believe it was mandatory to have a complaince plate. Check at your local RTA if you absolutely need to make sure.

    Sorry I can't get more accurate info.
