Are you trying to do a lookup on the bike with the government/revs etc to see if it is listed as stolen/written off/money owed etc?

If so, vehicles before 1989 are not available according to this website:

Vcheck offers those planning to buy a second-hand vehicle a quick and easy way to obtain important information prior to purchase. Vcheck can be purchased for a car, truck, caravan, trailer, bus or motorcycle which has been manufactured on or after 1 January 1989.
