Personally I don't see a problem with it but I realise 'where they are coming from' regarding bike thefts and everything that goes with it.  The DVLA website states

  • a receipt for the replacement engine
  • written evidence from the manufacturer
  • an inspection report provided for insurance purposes
  • written confirmation on headed paper from a garage (if the change took place before you bought the vehicle)'

So in effect you need the old receipt from ten years ago from when you bought the bike.  I am guessing you might not have it?  Perhaps you might be able to 'find' an old one?   Even the handwritten one from the mate you bought it from might be enough, especially if it gives the frame number and engine number?
