I have an NOS Jack Taylor frame, that has never been painted. It was built in 1990, covered in a primer coat by the Taylors and then put into storage when the factory closed. It's now in my possession.   I'm having it painted. This may sound like a silly question, but I thought it would focus the philosophers. When I have it built up, should it be a 1990 bicycle?  Or a 2009 bicycle?

Doesn't matter. If you paint it it will no longer be "original" :-P
