I have a '97 Burton Custom 155 that still rides absolutely fine. If you have $50 to spare, take it to a good shop for a base grind/hotwax/edge sharpening and you'll be having a great time on it. If you only have $20 to spare, take it for just a wax and a sharpening.
If when you start bombing runs and railing carves you feel like it's a little unstable or it's chattering, then it might be time for you to consider an upgrade from that custom. Until then, that thing should be plenty of board for anyone.
and actually, my '97 custom 155 is as light or lighter than a lot of boards i've picked up lately. it's ridiculously light.
