This version of the Sports Tourer isn't like the 60s-70s version of it. You won't be destroying a highly collectable and desirable bike by doing anything to it.

That being said, if you're going to put money into a bike, IMO a better frame is a better starting point. Look for a bike with at least CrMo in the main tubes- preferably the frame, stays, and fork being made of CrMo.

If you love this frame, there's no reason to keep it stock. Mod it to what makes your ride enjoyable.
