There isn’t a salvaged/wrecked bike registration law in Taiwan.
I hope this might help:
I can only go on my own experiences in California. I registered a few repo’ed motorcycles as “salvaged” meaning that they were at one time deemed unroadworthy and the plates were pulled on them.
I fixed them up (Well my super talented agrophobic mechanic partner did)
I re-registered them with new plates and registration after passing emissions and safety tests.
Some of the bikes had been “totalled” by dealerships meaning they checklisted a thousand tiny things wrong with the bike that would make the bike so expensive to fix it would exceed the worth of a bike and therefore uninsurable and listed as a “wrecked” bike.
Taiwan doesn’t have an existing law to cover these situations hence the lack of vintage car clubs etc. You can’t rebuild a bike here and register it.
You can’t register a bike that has been deemed a wreck, seized by the police or EPA as abandoned etc.
Why does the Gov. do this?
To make us all happy consumers who buy new, taxable products every 1.5 years is why.
Now stop making me type so much–my vocabulary is limited.
