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.

I consider anything before June 25th 1997 as 'retro' in the 'this site' terminology. After that its just old, new, or timeless :D
