what exactly do you wanna know? before '86, we toured exclusively on 'vintage' machines. worked out rather nicely. some still do, and it still does.

are you asking because you have an older bike, or are considering buying an old bike?

if you already have one, and everything works......go on a tour and have fun.

if you're looking at a vintage tourer, and everything works.....buy it, go on a tour and have fun.
