THIS DOES NOT APPLY TO BIKES BOUGHT FOR TRACK-PURPOSES. Some may have toyed with the idea of getting a "cheap" bike at the auctions, repairing it and putting it back on the road. Money saved...right? WRONG. And things are getting worse (more expensive). Until recently: a) Buy bike, assess damage yourself. b) Collect receipts for ALL and EVERY purchase of parts/materials in regards to the repair (even the flat-black from Bunnings). c) Make appointment via VicRoads for a VIV inspection ($300 plus GST) (VIV=checking of all repair-items/ materials used in repair and the overall quality of repairs, NOT roadworthiness). d) Then the RWC (VIV has to be presented here, as vehicle is on the write-off register) e) Then the inspection of vehicle at VicRoads (VIV and RWC needed) and registration. Now another item has been added: the SRS (Structural Report summary?) It's an engineer's report required BEFORE the VIV booking is made (otherwise the $330bux are blown). The changes apply to point a) above... REGARDLESS of any visible/ asseible damage to frame/ forks/ triple-clamps!!!) The front-end/ plastics/tank etc have to be stripped, bike transported to Bob Martin (or similar frame/ chassis-specialists), measured in the rig, anything out from specs noted and documented, frame/ triple/forks straightened, new settings (factory settings as a comparo have to be supplied and documented as well) have to be documented. Pictures (prints/ NOT a CD or such) of originally damaged bike and during repairs have to be presented as well. Bob Martin will then issue the requested SRS-report which has to be presented at the VIV inspection. There's NO exception to the procedure, even if any damage only relates to superficial stuff like scratched plastics/ dented tank/ busted instruments and lights (which with todays parts-prices often make a repair uneconomical...despite nothing being substantially wrong with the vehicle). If you plan to buy a fixer-upper to ride around again...add yet another $500++ to the expected repair/ re-registration costs. It'd be logical to assume that things are the same in other States.
