without clear definitions of what these terms really mean, it's hard to fully discuss them and have strong opinions - BUT - clearly, the italians did not/do not share the romance with and nostalgia for the "old stuff". and, as we know from jan h's many posts, many hand-made french frames were routinely "updated" by adding braze-ons and changing rear dropouts, etc. so why is it bad to re-work frames and/or part out old stuff for new now? the ebay gios is a prime example; in some posts, the seller represents the "dark side". has anybody's opinion veered in the last 24 hours?
