compliance of the new vincents

Considering the bikes are built to "original specifications" then I suggest they would NOT be compliant. I do not know whether the bikes built in France are compliant either.

I belive the folding footrests were the only problem in registering for single vehicle approval in the UK for the 'new' vincents (they folded the wrong way) so I dont think its an impossible task yet.
As for what is legal over in the euro mess land who knows since unlike us they all pass stringent laws and then make a cottage industry out of avoiding them
I expect (but dont know)that Goddet has found such a loophole for his Eglis it would be interesting to know what it is perhaps we could register them over there and then import them(oops I am begining to sound like a eurocrat).
