I got my motobecane super touring new, when I was 15. I started swapping parts when the next Bike Warehouse arrived. As best as I can recall, I've never changed the headset. Just about everything else has been "upgraded", often more than once. My other bikes get modified as desired too. Brifters - done it. Triples - Usually. bar-cons- often. 27" to 700c conversions -sure. Raleigh three speeds would be the exception. I tend to look for period appropriate parts for those, if only because so little else fits.
