About This Quiz

Can you tell a '70s Low-Rider from a modern Harley, or a classic Kawasaki from one made in the past 10 years? Know the difference between the Honda super bikes of the past versus the company's latest innovations? If you think you can tell a vintage ride from one built in more recent times, take our quiz to prove your motorcycle IQ!

While bike lovers might notice cool choppers everywhere they go, the motorcycle industry as a whole is relatively young. Yet in just a century or so, manufacturers have managed to produce a wide array of two-wheeled vehicles, from high-end luxury models to commuter rides with price tags designed for the working man or woman. 

Have you ever looked at an old picture and been able to estimate when it was taken? There's just something about the way style changes throughout the decades that allows you to date an image. The same way you can examine an old family photo and match it to a certain year by looking at clothing or hairstyles, you can also determine when a motorcycle was made simply by checking out the style, technology or design. 

Think you can match a motorcycle to the decade it was made using just a single image? Take this quiz to find out!
