Getting the best Classic Bike Insurance

Make sure your classic bike is properly insured...

Motorcycle enthusiasts often debate the definition of a classic motorcycle.

Some focus on the age of the bike while others look at the style of the motorbike itself. Still, purists consider the bike’s place in history as an important consideration.

Taking into account the many different opinions as to what exactly constitutes a classic motorcycle, it seems that age, appearance, status of the motorcycle and its construction are all important factors in determining whether the model can be deemed a vintage.

Whatever the age of your classic bike, we can provide agreed value insurance for your classic bike to make sure it’s properly insured.

FAQs about Classic Bike Insurance

Still need some help? Take a look at our help and FAQs here...

When does a motorcycle become a classic bike?

It can vary from insurer to insurer but generally your motorcycle will be considered a classic bike after 20 years; some underwriters will consider it a classic bike insurance policy for a bike that is 15 years old but others go as high as 25 or 30 years.

Although age is an important consideration, it must also be pointed out that a classic motorcycle doesn’t simply mean an old model. To be worthy of classic status, the bike needs to have demonstrated over a reasonable amount of time that it can stand on its own among the countless types of motorbikes that have and are being produced.

What does a classic motorbike look like?

In terms of construction, a classic motorcycle should feature simple aesthetics and elements that can be easily traced back to the origins of these machines. Classic motorbikes might have an incredibly long history, but it’s characteristics such as air-cooled, two-cylinder engines, single headlights and double supports on the rear wheel that are the more typical hallmarks of classic models.

Appearance is another important element. Classics tend to have the simple lines and looks that are found on many post-World War II motorcycles.

More than anything else, classic motorbikes are those that have achieved a cult or iconic status. They stand out from the crowd because of their design quality and popularity with riders due to their excellent construction and performance.

Classic models are revered by enthusiasts as they are seen to be fantastic machines in their heyday.

Restoring and maintaining a classic motorbike is a passion for enthusiasts rather than just a hobby. Not only can you get hours of joy in working on your machine, you can also go up and down the country for riding events to show off the fruits of your labour. Additionally, the value of classic motorbikes holds up well, so the time and money you spend on them can be considered an investment rather than an expense.
