    If you have a pre 1973 bike you may use the black plate. This is a quote from DVLA
    Traditional plates for vehicles constructed before 1 January 1973
    Vehicles constructed before 1.1.1973 may display traditional style “black and white”
    plates i.e. white, silver or grey characters on a black plate.
    The only way around this would be to buy an old registration from DVLA which I may do myself. This probably is still open to breaking the law because it says vehicles constructed before 1973. I have a 1966 Lambretta with the plate ADY 62D but I'm not allowed to transfer it !
