Re: I loved my gtv briefly
thats really bad luck man but i sold a bike a while ago and told the person i sold it to that it had been declared a write off (was selling a 4 month old bike with 3k on the clock for £100) but he went on ahead and repaired it and spent a few thousand on it so when he came back to me a year later and told me he couldnt get it insured i helped him as much as i could to get him cover.
long story short - if you have the log book and it passes an MOT it is certified to be roadworthy.
-some insurance companies wont accept this but they all accept an engineers report that it is roadworthy, costs a bit more than an MOT and it is alot more stringent so what passed a standard MOT may not pass teh engineers report.
-finally some insurance companies still insure cat d write offs
all is definitely not lost, i got that guys bike insured in a few days of helpin him out but you should try to recoup as much money off him as possibel, check out the citizens advice beauru (i cant spell)
