One reason I can think of to ride old stuff is that it's cool. Stuff that was the cat's ass 'back in the day' is still cool. Like those dudes at Goodwood who go racing vintage jaguars or ferrarii, although technologically 'obsolete' (thanks Chuck) they are still cool. Like those pumas you wore and the music Miles Davis played, that De Rosa Eddy rode was da bomb.

It's got less to do with the fact that it's old, it has more to do with the fact that at the time it was made, you could do no better. Having the fine taste to recognize these achievements doesn't hurt one's reputation for coolness either...
