Depends on how old old is, and how fast you want to go.

I'm perfectly content going 55 to 60 on my old Triumphs, 75 on my Norton or Guzzi, 50 on my dream, 65 on my 750 hondas. but then they are not my ONLY bike so when I take them for a cruise, I work within their boundaries. If I want to haul ass I get my Ducati out.

So I put no undue expecation on those old motors as I used them within the boundaries they were designed to work in.
