Historic Motorcycle Tags in MD - April 13, 2011, 10:15 PM

Anybody acquired historic tags in MD before for there motorcycle? I'm having issues trying to find out what equipment is required for "historic" tags, or if it doesn't matter at all and I can just go pay and acquire tag for it? Looked on the mva site but the only thing I found was the form to apply for the historic tags, not if I need a MSI or not. If it matters at all, I already have the title switched over to me too.

no inspection/no emissions needed if i recall to get historic tags. if i recall if was filled out paperwork only. i havent checked into it for a bike, yet i had at one point checked into it for a car.

Thanks for the info Keebler!

Yeah thats what it was looking like to me too, that it wasn't required. It just showed what it excluded on the site, which wasn't very informative. Reason was I'm not trying to run a horn and turn signals on the bobber I'm doing, want to keep it clean.

i think their supposed bs rule is that your only allowed to put x number of miles on it a year or maybe thats for the pleasure/2nd vehicle....but they never keep track per coworkers who have historic/hot rod vehicles.

I have had a few historic tagged bikes. The MVA site says anything over 20 years old. But I swear for bikes it's 25 years old. Don't hold me to that though.

It does state that the vehicle can not be your only form of transportation and there is a limit to the amount of miles per year you can ride. Although I've never had them check.

The age is pretty much the only requirement. You don't have to have the bike inspected. Although honestly... I always get mine inspected just to see if there is anything wrong.


Then again... That's just me.

On the internet... Everyone is an expert.

Yeah, I should be good. Its a 80' Yamaha XS 650, a winter project I'd been working on. Here's a rough idea of what Im going for.
