This Old girl could be a challenge to register. It has never been complied despite having spent the last 24 years here. I have the North Dakota Certificate of title and that's IT as far as paperwork goes. Anyone been through an exercise like this?

Those Cromodora mags look very cool. A lot like Bathurst Globes.

Had them for years, I was saving them for my Triumph, but  it got sold. I found them in a wreckers yard on a Datsun Silvia. They got a hiding on Frankenstarlet river buggy for years too before I realised they are quite rare and worth money.

Sneaky side request here: Would you consider selling the rusty MGB Rostyles?

Holding air and being structurally sound are not necessarily bound together. 

Mag becomes weak.  As cool and light as they are,  I would be super cautious.

Done some research on this topic. If they were pure magnesium I would see them as shed ornaments for sure. I will have them NDT'd for peace of mind. The alloy formulation must be reasonably durable, Cromodoras of this vintage are still kicking around in fairly large numbers, although mostly in Europe/US. But yeah not taking anything for granted

All good. Sneak away! Undecided as to their future at this point.
