new keeper or in trade

Chaps.....i might start trying to buy and sell motorbikes. Buy for a decent price, repair/service etc and sell for a small profit. If i do this, when i buy one, i dont want to add a keeper as i will only have it for a couple of weeks. Does anyone know if i can ask the seller to assign me as the keeper in trade rather than new keeper? Are there any guidelines?

Think you'll find that if you want to do this as a hobby, you don't have a choice other than to change ownership to yourself and adding an owner
If you become a "Trader" then you keep the log book from the seller and give it to the buyer having given the seller the "selling to a trader"
Where the boundaries are though.....

You do have the potential issue of tax vs test rides. If a potential buyer wants to go for a ride, it should be taxed or on trade plates. The former will require you to own the vehicle, the latter is where 'trader' comes in but trade plates can be expensive.
