How do you get a replacement compliance plate?

Afternoon All, I have an old (1981) KTM i'm going to restore but the hardest part to fiind for it is probably going to be a replacement compliance plate. The original is still there but largely unreadable as the headlight rear shroud has rubbed most of it away. I'm going to just put it on vintage bike rego but I'll need a readable plate. Does anyone know who I should contact to get this started?

Cheers

OD

I think a ktm dealer should be able to help you out.

There is only one compliance plate issued for any vehicle if it gets lost or destroyed, too bad they cannot be replaced.

I had a similar issue with my old hilux ute , the plate fell off as the rivets had fatigued over the 20 or so years and 1/2 a milion k's it had done , I had to go through the local Toyota dealer who had to inspect the vehicle , check all the numbers were correct and then fill out a number of forms to submit to the manufacturers representatives here in the Aussie republic and the NSW Gumbymint where upopn I was presented with a letter of ADR compliance for that vehicle that had to be with the vehicle at all times when in motion . Dunno how this will be achieved with a vehicle that is not currently registered though , talk to the guys at Dubbo KTM Bill , they might have some knowledge on the subject , good luck , you'll wear out at least one pair of boots running around after it I am sure of that .

I would've started here:

Just contact your states registration authority and ask them: "What do I do?..."

I had an issue with my mz when I went to register it, QT had no record of the engine or frame no. But the bike had a compliance plate. As far as I was concerned and I pointed this out to them, the bike had been complianced in Oz, their record keeping was not my problem. So as long as you have the plate readable or not, you shouldn't have a drama. They never found the details of the bike but I supplied the numbers and they registered it. Ringadingding !

I don't think your vehicle would have a compliance plate anyway some early KTM's were not compliant,certainly no VIN which they normally want,I would think the engine number alone should suffice ,any numbers stamped on it are usually stamped on the frame,if you are still in trouble find another bike and copy the compliance numbers off it,alternatively take the plate off and look at it with a very strong magnifying glass,red plate reg is very understanding not as strict as full reg,join a club in Vic that does their own scrutiny not a RWC,cheers Nev

Shane....mate why don't you just tell me what you think instead of beating about the bush like thatI'll check those links but, and I am joining the CVMC I have the registration to hand in on Sunday at the swap meet...are you goin?

Troy, yeah mate she's a '81 250GS 2 smoke . Horvaths are about to get a good size order from me

Saintell, yeah this one has a compliance plate, it's probably one the rare ones that Floody decided to comply It even has blinkers!

Phil, sorry mate but Posties are strictly for the elite, I don't think i could handle the outrageous power of one of those suckers.

I read through those links ages ago and i'm pretty sure if your in the club and get the road worthy etc it doesnt even matter about the plate/vin/eng number.

See Don at main street auto he's a supporter of the club and he'll definetly know what you need.He'll probably be at the swap meet.

Dunno about the swap meet I'm over the valley on friday and dunno if i'll be back.
