Just a thought but I understand if you attach a bolt on swinging arm modification to make a trike the registration process is much easier.

Once it is registered in this way supposing you then further modify, I thinking frame modifications do you have to go through the registration process again.

At all times the bolt on swinging arm conversion would be kept but was thinking along the lines of reducing seat height etc.

Pipe dreams at the moment but any guidance welcome.

Hi Dave
I had Hagons make me a pair of shorter rear shocks to lower the rear end/seat height of my Honda by two inches and a local company re-profiled my seat to take an inch off the depth of the foam.
I'm no expert but you need professional advice when altering the frame geometry or handling could become 'interesting' if not dangerous.
Notifying your insurance company of modifications is IMHO probably more important than notifying the DVLA. If you have to make a claim and the insurance assessor disapproved your mods he could decline cover. In the case of personal injury to a third party or their vehicle the cost could bankrupt you. Insurance companies will wriggle at any opportunity; they're not in business for our benefit.

I know I can only ride one bike at a time.
Your point is?

What's the problem with the registration process? It is quite easy....
