SECTION 411-B
Registration fee schedule for historical motorcycles
Vehicle & Traffic (VAT) CHAPTER 71, TITLE 4, ARTICLE 15
§ 411-b. Registration fee schedule for historical motorcycles. For
each motorcycle which is owned and operated as an exhibition piece or
collectors item, and is used for participation in club activities,
exhibit, tours, parades, occasional transportation and similar uses, but
not used for general daily transportation, an annual fee of twenty-five
dollars. For purposes of this section, a historical motorcycle shall
mean any motorcycle manufactured more than twenty-five years prior to
the current calendar year, and any other model, year and type motorcycle
which has unique characteristics and which is determined by the
commissioner to be of historical, classic or exhibition value.
Registration plates for such motorcycles shall be of a type and design
approved by the commissioner, but shall be of a distinctive nature,
except that, with the approval of the commissioner, an owner of any such
motorcycle may utilize registration plates of this state with the date
of year corresponding to the model year date when the vehicle was
manufactured, if the model year date registration plate is legible and
serviceable, as determined by the department, in lieu of the
registration plates otherwise required by this chapter. Such plates
shall be used only for the operation of the motorcycle listed on the
registration application and on other motorcycles which would qualify
for registration under this schedule owned by persons other than the
registrant for the purpose of test driving by the registrant or his
agent in anticipation of possible purchase. No such registration will be
issued unless evidence of financial security, in a form prescribed by
the commissioner, is submitted which provides coverage for the
motorcycle listed on the registration application and for non-owned
motorcycles being operated with such plates. Notwithstanding any
inconsistent provision of this section, the difference collected between
the fees set forth in this section in effect on and after September
first, two thousand nine and the fees set forth in this section in
effect prior to such date shall be deposited to the credit of the
dedicated highway and bridge trust fund.
