A Belgian chap over on the Speed Talk forum posted this a few months ago: "The gov here implemented tech inspection every 2 years for oldtimers between 30 and 50, every 5 years when older than 50. The sad thing is that all mods are banned. They may only be original. Right now about 50 % of all oldtimers here are banned from the road as a consequence. Mine included (for the only reason that I have an ITB fuel injection on the engine - rest is original...) It sure is a victory for the purists. I really start to hate the EU which is at the basis of this regulation. It has become sort of a communistic regime..." Aghast, I asked: "Does this leftist nonsense apply to motorbikes, as well? And what's going to happen to all those gorgeous performance modded 2CVs in France, and all those gorgeous performance modded VW Beetles, Porsches 911s, and NSU Prinz TTs in Germany, and all those gorgeous performance modded Fiat 500s and 126s in Italy and Poland? Monsieur Belgian's reply was: "In 2022 bikes equally will have to pass tech inspection. And yes the VW Beetles, Porsches etc fall under the same nonsense." This discourse took place in the Vintag Engine Tech subforum of Speed Talk, so clearly everyone in that thread is very much biased toward pro-vintage motoring legislation. I understand plenty of you reading may not care about vintage metal at all--fine, to each his own, we can still be entirely civil to one another. What I really want to know is: can any advrider inmates confirm this has indeed become law in the European Union?
