Rego a new build in Qld

Rego a new build in Qld

Post by panhead_pete » Sat Jul 09, 2011 8:09 am

Hi Guys

Been away living OS and doing other stuff but am progressing with getting a sporty based chop built. What's the process for getting it rego'd in Qld?

You may need to have a longer rear gard, it must at least meet the end of the rear wheel.

It will need to have indicators and noise restricted, and must pass your roadworthy, once you have roadworthy cert, you should be right.

Passing the roadworthy is the hardest, if you have someone then you are covered.

What part of QLD are you in, there maybe some others close by to help.

Good luck

Thanks for the reply. I have a sporty rear gaurd complete with OEM tailight and indicators that will sit on it for the RWC and some for the front which will all be wired up at the time of RWC and will have a tuneable exhaust, most likely a Supertrapp so whould be able to make that very quiet. Im in Bris. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!

Where are RWC's done in Qld?

G'day Pete - I know a guy who could probably help out with a roady.
Has it been registered here/Qld before?
Cheers
Matt

Hi Matt
Thanks for the offer of help. No previous rego history. If you can point me in the right direction that would be great!

take the bike ( sometimes they want to see it) and the paperwork down to the dept of transport, and that is it. RWC is good for 2 weeks

Being built by Kevin Baas using a Flyrite frame, so probably no.

OH well it will make a good bar ornament, those engineers can be total tossers when it comes to importing modern choppers from the U.S. Probably shouls have researched this first before going ahead with biulding one outside of Australia. :lol:

SA seems ok as far as new builds go... just need to comply with current regs which means a lot of rubbish older bikes don't need, but still not too difficult.

Prof its gettin made in the states, thats the problem right there. No record of anything and it is not stock thats where the problem lies you cant tell them you are going to restore it and its post 89 ADR compliance and import approval are a must. I saw customs crush a 36 Royal Enfield because the paperwork was not correct, what do you think they are gonna do to that.
