Pro riders have been known to come back in weeks and do quite well with no lasting effects, but they are pros after all and broken collarbones are almost a way of life for them. I believe 3 months is about average for mere mortals, but at 60 my guess is that it might take longer. I'd probably take the winter off and heal up.
