Antique, Classic & Vintage forum?

Just floating an idea here...
There is a growing and diverse community of Vintage, Classic and Antique motorcycle enthusiasts in the Chicago area. Many vintage oriented events and rides are taking place and many of them have been mentioned on and attended by CLSB members. There have also been threads that have been about all manner of vintage motorcycles and motorcycle history etc.
What do the Admins, Mods and members of CLSB think of adding an Antique, Classic, vintage and Motorcycle history forum to CLSB?

I like it.

This board really has gotten diverse.

Bump...I originally posted this on the beginning of a Holiday weekend, so I'm sure there are some who will support the idea, maybe you just haven't seen my suggestion...I know there is some real interest and at least a passing interest on CLSB for vintage bikes and motorcycle and racing history!

No but the F2 does. Remember when they first came out in 1936

I second the nomination for a vintage (pre-'80) section. A sub-forum would work for me.

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

Already posted thanks. I don't know how everyone else feels but can we keep posts in regards to bikes that qualify for Antique plates in IL. That means they have to be at least 25 years old.
