New to Austrailia

Discussion in 'Welcome Lounge' started by Paul Green, Apr 5, 2014.

  1. Hi all,

    I am new to Australia, I come from the UK where I had a bike for the last 14 years, I had a cruiser in the UK which I now have sold as I am here for a year or so.

    I have just bought one here in Melbourne, I have got a 1996 Kawasaki Vulcan 800 classic without registration or roadworthy certificate.

    The bike is in mint condition

    Therefore I need to get a roadworthy Cert before I can register it and get new plate, So I am informed by Vicroads.

    I live in Hampton 3188 and I am hoping someone on here can tell me the best place to go to get my roadworthy cert, I obviously want a mechanic who is honest and will not rip me off.

    I want my bike on the road as soon as possible and desperately need assistance from you guys.

    Also can someone tell me what I should be paying a mechanic to get a roadworthy Cert

    I have a 28 day temporary cert to take the bike without plate to a roadworthy testing station.

    Please can someone let me know who and where is the best place for me to go.
