Isn't this a bit like all those shops that sell e-scooters which aren't street-legal?

and all the sellers of limo black window tint making it harder for already blind drivers to see us or camara proof, tinted, illigally spaced or otherwise hard to read number plates making it harder for us to report them.

A good start. Now target the sellers of conversion kits that Deliveroo* riders use to zoom past me at 30mph.

*Other food delivery services are available

I guess it's a natural progression from selling Denon amplifiers

On the one hand, they have a point. On the other hand, can't you buy any of the following which could be hypothetically used on a road but is not road legal?

  • Quad/ATV
  • Racing go-cart
  • Dirt bike
  • Onewheel
  • Electric skateboard
  • Lawn tractor

And for those with deeper pockets...

  • Moto GP bike
  • F1 car

If they started a racing league with these bikes, could they have plausible deniability?
