Antique & Vintage Motorcycle Reviews

Pretty self-explanatory here. For a motorcycle to attain Antique status, it’s common that it should be more than 50 years-old. The qualifying age for Vintage-grade bikes is often 20 to 25 years-old. And don’t be surprised if you also hear the term Classic bandied about in regard to old bikes. Basically, they’re all simply old. When restored to a high degree of finish, many rare and classic bikes can fetch large sums of money, especially if they have a racing pedigree or a celebrity tie-in. Some bikes in this category are just museum pieces or trailer queens, but many are owned by enthusiastic owners who actually fire up the things and ride them.

Retrospective: 1922 Humber Cycle

While ungainly looking, the Humber was stoutly powered by a 600cc, 4.5 hp flat-Twin, with horizontally opposed cylinders arranged longitudinally rather than across the frame like BMW Boxers.

1937 BMW R12

BMW had a big problem in 1926: In sidecar service, their frames were cracking at the welds. It was necessary to design a completely new frame -- and while they were at it a completely new motorcycle in order to cure it.

Road Test: 1946 Indian Chief

Contrary to popular belief, it is possible to have a blast going ten miles per hour. The catch, however, is that it helps to be riding the Holy Grail of cruisers.
