There is a certain type of person that actually competes at having the most complete and accurate restoration of their bicycle. These are the people who never, never actually ride, at least not the complete restoration, because use takes points off at the bike shows. I've never been to a concours competition, and think that it would be cool to go look, but I also think bikes are really really meant to be ridden. btw, a truly pristine original will always trump the best restoration...My bottom line is build for riding. Otherwise you have a really expensive dust collector.

...2) 1973 Masi GCs one restored, repainted all NOS parts.
one wears original components paint etc. and has been
cleaned maintained etc.
Which Masi has more "Mojo"? ...

I had a 75 GC fall out of the sky last October, and have spent the winter putting it back to original spec (1st gen super record, last of the "inexpensive" parts on eBay...). I'm currently riding it a couple of times a week. If I continue and take good care of it it'll grow new mojo, won't it?
