This is a situation that I think our club members should know about.
I have an original paint '64 FLH that I just tried to get "antique" tags for in PA.
I was denied because the saddlebags and gas tanks have some scratches.
They said the bike should be restored.
Even after re-applying with a long letter explaining the value of un-restored, original machines, I was denied again.
I'm sure that they have no idea what an original machine looks like, and if I covered it with chrome, flashy paint and Chinese parts, I'd have no problem.
What a shame that these originals are just treated like rats.
