So everyone I've spoken to has said to keep my 1976 Honda cj250t stock as a rock, get it rego'd, then to customise it. But what happens with I need to get I pink slip the next year? How do people pass their custom cafe conversions in NSW each year? Thanks!

Standard gearhead.
You get checked on a few things, I'll outline what you need for rego:

Headlight - High beam & lowbeam.
Tail light - Stop light, marker light, number plate illumination light (usually all in one)
Indicators - All four work and flash at a consistent rate.

No oil leaks, excessive smoke, excessive exhaust noise or operation that is otherwise dangerous/unlawful (eg sticking throttle).

For your blue slip, though, they will be a bit more stringent and will look the bike over fairly carefully. It is down to the individual tester what gets through - some like this, others don't like that. If its stock then it is almost ensured to get through as long as all the lights etc work.

Modifications also take time, and having a base running bike is the biggest concern. If you start modifying straight away it might be some time before you get her registered!

Cheers - boingk

Another option is and this depends on what mods you are going to do, is download the roadworthy rules from the state government website and make the mods so they meet the rules and/or if the mods are a bit more complex then get them approved.
In QLD an "Approved Person" can OK certain mods and attach a mod plate to prove they are OK.

I don't know what the process is in NSW but I'd reckon they would be similar. Arguably jumping thru a few more hoops at the start and possibly making a few concession will make for an easier future.

Not very rebellious I know - but.......

Ok well I've gone ahed with a few mods. The bike was not running when i got it so I thought I may as well do a few things.

Relocated battery/pod filters, new rear guard, new tyres, new tachometer/speedo, clubman bars, new seat, new LED indicators, new tail light. All these mods are simply cosmetic so I don't see a reason why they would not be considered roadworthy.

Are led lights ok? What about clubmans?

Thanks

does anyone know if there is a list of regulations or rules anywhere to do with rego in nsw that can tell you what is legal and what is not for things like ie: mud guard sizes, muffler volume, dose chassis number have to match engine etc

Got some information but it is in different places so will take some digging out (in other words, I've forgotten where I've filed it).
From memory, on guards: the back guard has to extend to a vertical line drawn from the rear of the back tyre, the front guard between lines drawn at 45 degrees forward and horizontally backward from the wheel centre. Will post what little info I have when I get some time to look for it (soon!).
Anything that looks dodgy will attract attention but a pink slip is a lot easier than getting a blue slip (neither of which is really coloured anymore). The main concerns for pink slips are: engine and frame numbers match rego papers; headlight high and low beams work; blinkers and horn work; brake lights work on both front and rear brakes; tyres have sufficient tread depth.

Although this is the National Standards, the States do make changes (seatbelts in Vintage cars is a classic - all states have a different varation and are not compatiable across borders :-\ )
