I don't know anyone who competitively races a vintage steel frame.
A lot of folks with many bikes have one or two that may not get ridden or only lightly.
I also ride with folks in their 70s and 80s and those vintage bikes don't get punished.

All of mine get ridden.
Nothing rare or precious.
Even pull out the tandem for 2 annual rides, solo. Memorial Day, Veterans Day. (always seeking a Puget Sound stoker)

edit: @63rickert - definitely low maintenance in the 'spousal needs' category. Enviable.
