Sorry, I missed this post of yours. FC renewal, after the first 15 years, is valid for 5 years.

Why don't you post a couple of pics of the bike in its present condition? Old IND-Suzuki / TVS-Suzuki bikes are becoming an increasingly rare sight on our roads.

I have to wait for months to see a decent Supra or Shogun on the road, and this is the situation in Bangalore, where half the population is running crazy after 2 strokes!

Default Re: Old Bike / Scooter: Sell Parts, Scrap or duplicate RC?

Hi Guys,
facing a similar dilemma. We have a Scooty ES which will complete 15 years next year and is Goa RTO registered. We are now in Indore and do not want to register the vehicle in Indore as was told the formalities -NOC from Goa and tax payment at Indore will work out to around Rs 10,000.The scooty is working but occasionally veers and gives an unstable feeling .After a while this problem disappears and it works perfectly well with a mileage of around 40 kpl. I have shown the same to many mechanics but it is not rectified. Hence planning to buy a new scooter. Since it is an out station vehicle there are no takers at TVS for an exchange offer. However an agent offered to buy it as scrap for Rs 1500,but the doubt is he will not scrap it and instead use it and since it will not be transferred there might be issue later. Please advise.

My dad had a 1998 Suzuki Max 100 R which he sold to a very close friend in 2006. The friend lost the original RC book and because he didn't do a name transfer , at the end of 15 years in 2013 and he was not interested in going through the formalities for duplicate RC and FC, we asked him to give back the vehicle to us .

We dismantled the vehicle on our own . We sold the parts as metal scrap to at least 5 different scrap shops over a period of 3 months . We also scraped the engine and chassis number using a iron cutting machine we had at home. All this was possible because dad is a DIY person unlike me.

I don't understand the need for getting police clearance if you dismantle on your own . After all, even cars are being used without name transfer on RC book by unknown people and god knows what happens after the FC expires.

We have retained the number plates though.

I've a related question if somebody has been through a similar problem. I've a PB12 registered bike that is of no practical value anymore. I've the RC but the scrap guy wants me to get it deregistered first. The problem is I live in a different city than my RTO city and it will be a pain to go all the way to get it deregistered. Is there any other way out? The scrap guy is not ready to take the bike the way it is at the moment.

We have a 1987 Bajaj Super scooter in our home. It is my dads second vehicle. It has served us well since my dad used it for good 13 years till 2000. In 2000 my dad got a omni and the scooter was. Sparingly used. In 2006-07 I started to use it for my visit to college and tuitions until i got a pulsar 180 in 2009. Since then It has been very sparingly used. In 2014 I spent around 2k to get some minor repairs done. Meanwhile its RC expired in 2013 itself. Since then it was used only near my household since it doesn't have a RC. Recently I thought of restoring it but to my bad luck all scooter mechanics in my city have vanished and other mechanics don't want to entertain a scooter. But one of my clients has assured me that he'll help me restore our scooter but I am worried about expenses because I think it would come down to 10-15k which I think its not worth it. Any advice or tips are welcome.

IMO-

If the scooter has been with you for 30 years, I think 10 to 15k is a very tiny amount to be spent on it purely on nostalgic and sentimental value. Maybe a reward for it being a workhorse. If you want to think purely on the basis of utility then too its not too much expensive, just think about it how reliable it is, 2 strokes of that era are very cheap to maintain.

Just imagine how many products last for that long and still can be repaired and made to work easily.

Believe me when I say this that it is worth every penny of what you will spend to restore it. My dad had a 1978 Bajaj 150, which he sold off when he got his activa. There hasn't been a day that I don't think about that scooter and what I could have done with it now.

Please do think about the nostalgic value that scooter has and then make a decision.

Ps - If anyone finds a Bajaj 150, with registration number MET 3516, please let me know.

The things I have in mind to restore our Bajaj super is to get it repainted. Right now it sports a sky blue shade Im planning to get a silver or a back shade color, the trouble I'm having is none of the painters in my city are interested in painting a scooter because they say it's complex and not easy as other two wheelers. However I had convinced one guy and he quoted 6k for full repaint but didn't say anything about the welding of broken parts.

I also have plans to incorporate a battery in my scooter because it is currently running on a dynamo and it's output is anything but mediocre. I asked a auto electrician and he insisted that I change the entire engine and get a Bajaj chetak engine installed because it has a 12v output which can be connected to a battery.

There is another guy in my city who is Specialist in modding a scooter and he quoted 22k for full restore of my scooter. Right now my scooter is facing one trouble of continuous fuel leak. It has reduced after the FNG fixed it but I can still see some leakage. Will update if all goes according to plan.

It is very essential to de-register the vehicle before scrapping. Cancellation of registration is the best and the safest way out. Cancellation and the RTO permission to scrap as the scrap guy says is very logical. There are a few possibilities if the registration is not cancelled.

(1) Sometime later on, some fraudster can get issued a duplicate RC book using your registration number, conniving with the RTO agents and engrave the same engine-chassis numbers to legalise the ownership. In rare cases such vehicles can be used for criminal activity. Signatures of owners can also be forged. Many of such cases escape notice of the law enforcers but if caught it can open a Pandora box.

(2) Sometime in the future if the taxation authorities decide to realise unpaid claims/ fitness dues etc, they can issue notices to the addresses of all owners of such motor vehicles that are registered with them, but have not been produced for fitness test/ state green tax (if applicable) dues or any other taxes pending.

Hence it is always wise to cancel the registration of such motor vehicles following the due formalities.
