German engineering and Yorkshire stubborness all the way!
OK, so after a long drawn out effort, the worst of which was with the DVLA,
I now have a new number for Helga.
Unable to keep VLJ504 I have a new plate ready to fit.
That's done and my insurance has been changed,now I can ride her. And this how she looks.
For the record she's a 1957 Combinette 'S', model 423, fitted with a type 258 2 speed engine.
This model was short lived, only being imported into the UK for 12 months.
