Isn't vintage as much a spirit of the bike as year of manufacture? I hope so.
vintage in the automotive world is anything over 25 yrs. antique is over 30. since we don't have an antique forum I feel like 25yrs old should fit
I don't know if or when it will be referred to in vintage talk. Very few of the 80s Japanese customs are referred to in vintage circles to my knowledge. They're nice classics, but just don't have the demand of some of their rarer or more standard looking models.So far I haven't seen my '83 Nighthawk cb550sc referred to as being in the vintage conversations. It's 25 years old now and getting parts is pretty difficult if I'm looking for OEM or NOS.
The bike is, of course, called the "One year wonder". Since it was only built and sold in the U.S. for that year, is that of any particular significance as to the value of the bike?
If not now...When???
