But to be a classic, it has to be a classic.
Oh that old chesnut... A 1979 MkIII Capri 3.0s is a classic car. A 1979 Ford Cortina 1.6L is just old.
Does that make a 1998 Kona LavaDome just old and a 1998 HeiHei classic.
Let us please not go down this road.
You ride it, you love it, you respect the trail and care for an older machine? You are a retrobiker.
You jump on it, treat it as disposable, can't wait to get a car/motorbike/ASBO? You are not a retrobiker.
Chill folks, there are too many lables flying around as it is.
Somerset, like 'Heartbeat' with newer cars!
