You don't know when your numbers up so enjoy life while you can, while still fit and able to play with toys. You can't enjoy them once 6 foot under or incapacitated with old age in a rest home. Better to look back with fond memories of this or that bike, not stare at a pointless bank balance from your walking frame.
    Yep exactly! No point getting old and then thinking you might finally buy a brand new bike and not be able to enjoy it!
    I also get a lot of satisfaction from the rebuilds I have done but to be honest, when they are finished, I don't want to ride them. The older bikes totally show their age compared to the current available machinery...

    Yep, restoring/building and riding are two separate sides of the same coin. I used to love fettling older bikes but now I'm in my 70's, riding is the number 1 priority whilst I'm still competent to do so. I want something new that I can just jump on with no hassle. All a matter of your interest and priorities at a given time of your life I guess.
