Next question for the list: Is a 30 year old bike old?

(At least I guessing that is the next question, reading between the enigmatic "i forgot to mention... that the n.o.s. Frejus is from NINETEEN SEVENTY TWO!")

If you are asking a 29 year old collector I think the answer would probably be, "Yeah, that was before I was even born!" And I remember when the advise was "Don't trust anyone over 30 (because they were OLD!)."

For me (born in 1944), a 59 year old 1943 Frejus would be analogous. Just a different and egocentric way of looking at the world.

If that 1972 Frejus makes it to being 100 years old without being parted out for profit, I wonder what the answer would be if someone asked, "Is a Frejus in NOS mint condition worth keeping together?"
