This made me laugh. Thank you Peter.
For those not in the know, the UK is about to abandon using a paper tax disc displayed on vehicles in favour of an electronic/computerised record which requires no paper disc or paper disc holder.
So every motorcycle currently on the road in the UK is about to have a redundant paper disc holder. Thus the value of a UK motorcycle paper disk holder is rapidly approaching the value of.......zero!
I might keep mine on for a while with the last paper tax disc issued just for the heck of it. Not sure if that will be legal or not actually as (my guess) the law probably still states that a displayed tax disc must be current (such is the stupidity of legislation sometimes!).
I love being right. If only it happened more often...

A lot of people I know (I know its hard to believe) who have 'old' bikes with history and paperwork, are considering putting an old tax disc in, one person has an original disc from 1948 when his father bought the bike, he will copy it and install it on his bike where it belongs. :lol:

Just Google "period tax discs" and there are many company's doing replica discs from the date your machine was originally registered.

Saw some for sale in the Sainsburys petrol station this morning. £5 I think. I should have got one free with my £86 of diesel.

The tax discs are worth a fortune already on eBay
