Acquired a gp125 frame which is not registered. What's best route to obtain a V5. Should I build it as standard with a 125 block in incase it's inspected and then update everything when a plate is issued. Thanks

Well, I still log on every day in the hope that there are some new posts or tech bits, and to let my little lady shake her ass :).
