Antique values for bikes
Ok, this is a legitimate question. How come some antique bikes, like Harley Davidson's, are valued so high $$ and classic Japanese bikes never are?
I looked online and no matter how old the Japanese bike was, and it didn't matter what the brand name was, Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki, it's $$ value was just as a used bike and not as an antique?
Japanese bikes are better quality, run longer, and should have antique value just like anything else. Can someone explain why they don't?
IF it ain't broke, ... Work on it, ... It soon will be!!!
