Hi all, I'm new (though not young) so go easy. I've been scouring the search pages, but have been unable to find a specific answer to this question. Is the up to date LAMS list (on the RTA website) completely gospel, with no margin for error? I ask as I'm in the process of buying my first bike (upgrade from classic Lambrettas) and seem to have stumbled upon a little quandary with regards to specific information on the list. The bike in question is a 1988 Honda GB500. I have seen these advertised as LAMS bikes, and low and behold, they do (kind of) appear on the RTA LAMS list. The issue arises when on the LAMS list it states the GB500 as being from 1977. There was no such bike in 1977, so this is obviously a mistake. Though when i asked at the local RTA office, i was told, well it must be a different bike so can not be LAMS approved. Further confusion is added, because the bike was never officially sold here, so comes in as an import (more vagueness). If anyone has experienced a similar issue and could offer any advice I'd be much obliged?
