Just curious , is there such a thing as a classic or vintage bike and if so , at what age does a bike reach this stage . Have a 1980 Goldwing GL 1100 , a few small problems but other than that in good running order . Wondering if so does it add any value to the bike .

Yes and no, let me explain , here in BC any bike over 20 years old qualifies for a Collector plate. that means cheap insurance if it is in stock condition.Not every bike is worth more just because its old.
If you want to know what yours is worth take a look at craigs list across the country and in your area. By the way update your profile to list your town/provence you never know if a member is just down the street from you.

The Vintage Japanese Motorcycle Club of America considers 15 years old "Vintage". The Antique Motorcycle Club of America uses 35years for their judging. In Ohio a vehicle has to be 25 years old to be issued historical license plates. Dennis

If Texas uses 25 years as the benchmark, I imagine most states are the same, like autos. ... rcycle.htm
If you're not a liberal when you're 25, you have no heart. If you're not a conservative by the time you're 35, you have no brain.

Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety. BF
