I agree, as long as what you do does not allow the bike to be restored back. you are doing a restomod. Keep all the original parts and update. that way some day down the road you can restore back.

I am toying with the idea at this time myself, I have a repainted and Single speed converted 1977 TX900 i picked up. That is missing most of all of its Campy NR components. so i was thinking i would use newer stuff (which i have) and get the bike going and then collect the Campy NR parts and then someday restore.
