@ericjd, you will see lots of special bike projects for randonneuring here on BF, and I love me a bike project as much as anyone, but don't feel like you *must* check all of the boxes in order to ride brevets!

The important things are that your bike be comfortable enough for the whole ride, that it be reliable enough to get you the end, and to have some kind of lighting for the longer rides. Any number of bikes, old or new, can get that job done.
