Martin you are not right as I understand it. In order to get MOT exemption, apart from the manufacturing date, you have to have the bike taxation class changed to Historic. The ruling is the same as the conditions that currently prevail for pre 1960 vehicles.
Rusty heaps from the hedgerows are unlikely to have any documents and so you would need to obtain an age related plate and that involves some costs, logistics regarding documents and a vehicle inspection. Incidentally they will no accept a basket case for this, it must be a completely assembled vehicle.
Other opinions may be available but this one is always correct.
Thank you for your support...
