I've been "enjoying" my '64 Legnano for 55 years. I was a teenager not much younger than you are when I got this bike new. I'm 69 now, and still enjoying the ride. Get out there and ride, lots of miles, lots of smiles. Sure the old bike has a few battle scars, but do does the rider.

Funny story. I built a Raleigh Super Course from a frame I found in the trash. I posted a picture of my new proud creation here on Bikeforums. When I looked at the picture, I noticed a paint chip on the right chainstay. It bugged me so much that I ran out to the garage with touch-up paint (at 10 o'clock at night) and "fixed" the chip. The first scratch is the hardest.

My Raleigh, paint chip fixed, till the next time.
