logbook renewals

Bit off topic for RIBs but someone may know. How do you renew a logbook for a vehicle that was last on the road in 1965 and still only has the old buff logbook (I had never even seen one of these before and I am not exactly a teenager anymore)
The DVLA site isn't helpful and the number doesn't come up on a vehicle search 9not suprisingly)
I just want to start rebuilding the bike and want to know if
a) the original number is still available
b) have the vehicle keeper registered as me
c) See if the number is transferable
How do I go about it?

Bruce - I happened to stray across what I think you are looking for yesterday when I was trying to find something completely different! I think this page (and in particular the PDF V765) is what you want (or part of it!).

EDIT oops link would be useful : http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/Diol1/DoItOnline/DG_4017797

I had found something from the owners club talking about this but not the actual form. The notes seem to answer the last few questions I had.
It seems with the old logbook and the 1965 tax disc still attached to the bike I should be able to reclaim the original Glasgow registration for 20 through the owners club but it won't be transferable. Good news and Bad news

'ave a coconut that man. It is a 1951 D1 Bantam.
Hasn't been on the road since 1965 and, apart from the surface rust, is in remarkably good nick.
I stripped it down yesterday and all the bolts apart from one rear hub nut came off with no problems.
Other than the carb and toolbox its all there.
I keep trying to get bigger bikes to rebuild and ending up with bantams as they are cheap.
Now I just need to find someone to chemically clean the cases and bead blast/paint the frame and parts.
I stripped the egg last night and its perfect inside right down to the bearings but will be rebuilt anyway as the seals will be gone.
Anybody know of any good places for the required services?

i'm not 100% sure but if you get the bike road legal you can transfer the number, i've got an old mk 11 ford zephyr that i've had for 30 odd years and i'm lead to believe that if it was mot'd i can transfer the number

Only if you updated the logbook before 1983. If you still have the original logbook as is the case with this bike then the original number can be retained but it is non transferable.
