The problem I'd have with trying to recreate a bike from the days of old when I was only doing it from photos or published specs is that I would have no idea how it rides. What happens if you go through all the time, effort, and expense and find that you hate the ride? I have a buddy who's been very keen about collecting 1930s high-end Raleighs only to find out that he doesn't really like the way they ride.
