Hi I'm a new member and I own 2 x 1985 Armstrong 500's.One is on the road and Im in the process of trying to get a reg number for the other. I'd appreciate if another member could advise on how to obtain one and help with general maintenance.
Thanks
Shane

Welcome Shane.

If you have the original MOD release documents for the one you're trying to register, then there should be no problem. DVLA has been tightening up on age-related registrations, and there can't be that many MT500's still around that have not yet been registered.

Have a search around the site, there is plenty here to help with restoration.

On a small point of detail, the registration process has changed since first discussed on the forum

By all means search through historical posts if you wish to understand what the process WAS , however the only people who can advise on the current process is DVLA

If you haven't got any documentation or can't get any from the MOD, you may struggle
