    What would a 1945 Panhead be? A Classic or something else?

    I would say an ANTIQUE, albiet a very collectable one if it is in good shape, post a pix and...maybe...we can figure it out. Love old bikes!

    So people think. Personally I don't agree that an older bike is worth more just because it's old.:s:s
