My Ironhead will qualify for a "Vintage" tag next year (35 years old), and calling it a classic is still borderline in my mind...


If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

I consider all Shovels and ironheads classics, although, most qualify in most states for ANTIQUE plates.

I guess it also depends on your personal age.

I still a 1995 is a new car.....

I don't like the solid wheel look, so I milled vent slots in them in my shop. I restored this bike this year. There is a thread about it in the classics section from the beginning with pics. Named (shovelhead project, is it a good idea). This bike has been a blast to restore and she rides great!
