I am a firm believer that that classic old machine should be on the road. I've got two that are near assembled. A 77 Trek 700 531 frame returned to the form it was when I assembled it in 1979(Campy record throughout with an Avocet triple) and a Columbus SL frame (my first) set up with mostly DA EX.

I have Campy 50th #156 in the box. (No it's not for sale, bought it in 84) If I sell the set, it will probably remain in the box as a collector set. If I keep it in the box it collects dust in my collection. My basic instinct is to build it and ride it. It's kinda valuable to do that. But Oh, the beauty of those pieces.

So what should I do? Display or ride?
