I think insurance will be the killer here, i doubt you will find anyone to insure a midimoto. Also not sure but dont think these things have VIN/serial numbers so identify docs. Im 99% sure these are NOT road legal, ie "e" stamps and such.

Why not just grow up and buy a "big boys" bike???

I really wouldnt trust the DVLA as far as i could throw a midimoto, you probably got some antiquated desk clerk who dosent know what a midimoto is and asumed by the pics its a full size bike. Ive had many a dealing with the dvla and have had the (un)pleasure of dealing with them in registering new vehicles on a v55 on a few occasions. At the local office some of the staff were quite good and others very much not so (didnt have a clue).
Anyway im quite interested to see if you can get this registered, and what the insurance would be on it.
Good luck and keep us posted with the result.

As you only have a full car licence you would need to pass a bike test and CBT to use the bike on the road as the car licence only permits you to ride mopeds (up to 50cc). Otherwise you would also have to fit L plates which I cannot see being a fun challenge on one of these while avoiding it catching in the rear wheel and probably would make it look awful afterwards when you consider how nice they do look.

Overall, I think you might just be best selling the midi and going out to buy a full size bike that is road legal.

That stuff from DVLA is just the normal requirements for registering a vehicle.

The killer will be the "certificate of conformity". You may find that you need to follow the route used by kit cars and have it inspected - be aware this gets expensive quickly. Also expect to be stopped regularly by Police even if you do get it registered.

I think Astec123 is right - you'll find it easier/cheaper to go get a proper bike.
