Mazzer, how did you get on with the ULEZ? 

I too have recently bought a 1994 k1100rs to turn into a cafe racer but have just received an email from TFL stating they are expanding the ULEZ to include my address. I wasn't planning on using my bike for commuting but don't want to pay £12.5o every time I go for a ride!!

I have an 83 K100RS....2 more years and its exempt from it!!!.

On ULEZ maybe pick up a CAT exhaust and kit, lambda sensor etc. Not sure if you need to change the Motronic unit.. Not generally available but they are out there.

Here's a (somewhat out of date) list of bikes that have passed the individual emmisions test:
https://www.bikerandbike.co.uk/list-pre-euro-3-motorcycles-with-ulez-exemptions/

There's an RD350 on there. Apparently two-stroke have rather low NOx emmissions, and the test doesn't care about whatever else comes out of the pipes. Shocked

As I understand it, there's no general approval for K100/K1100; each bike has to go thru an individual test at £175.
There's a topic on this forum : https://www.k100-forum.com/t15284-ulez-london



My interest is rather mercenary - there might be some cheap '90s bikes going later this year...

It's not entirely clear whether historic vehicle status is a rolling 40 years or has been frozen at 1980:
https://www.gov.uk/historic-vehicles

I'm hoping the DVLA page is simply out of date. Even so, an '83 bike will likely have to wait until 1984. And vehicles from outside the UK might not be exempt anyway, although they probably can't fine you either.
