My impression has been that *all* bikes of any age require the safety inspection, but depending on vintage, requirements are less stringent (i.e. pre-70s bikes don't require turn signals). I can't find anything on the MVA site to say definitively either way. Can anyone out there confirm? -A

Vintage do not need inspection in MD.
What RM says is on point
MD has strict rules about when and where you can drive Vintage.
If you are worried about the bike take someone with you who knows them and or take it in for a pre-purchase inspection.

If you plan on riding the bike much, you may want to reconsider historic plates though.
From the MVA website:
A historic registered vehicle cannot be used for general daily transportation, or primarily for the transportation of passengers or property on highways. It can only be used in exhibitions, club activities, parades, tours, occasional transportation and similar uses.
Note: A Maryland Safety Inspection Certificate is not required to register this vehicle.
