I think that anyone who knows me would agree that I rarely "agree with the party line" ... any party line. I'm here to learn of the history, and gain perspective on what has changed over the years. My oldest bike, on the other hand, is vintage 1997 ... and about the only way I'll ever acquire a 1971 Masi is if someone presents me one, "just cuz".

I figure pre-turn of the 21st century is good enough for me from a vintage standpoint ... and bikes is for ridin', not sittin'.

Put it this way ... if I acquired a pristine Confente in my size, I'd ride it. In the rain. On purpose. That way it would lose its "oooh ... must protect the value at all costs" lustre right off the bat.

e-RICHIE's gonna hate what I do to JB's paint job before the frame he builds me ever rolls on pavement.
