Welcome to Bike Forums. Its your bike and your decision. Myself, I'd get a new (2015 or 2016) bike.
The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. - Psalm 103:8

I am a cyclist. I am not the fastest or the fittest. But I will get to where I'm going with a smile on my face.

FR, Sounds like you will have to do both....this is a great place for information, I like vintage steel but to each their own.

Jump over to the Classic and Vintage Forums.

If you have a local bike co-op or bike recycler, perhaps you could find a suitable frame to rebuild your existing bike.

E-Bay and Craigslist are very harsh on bikes with broken frames... So if you do decide to sell, you are right that it is best to strip the bike. Keep what you want, and sell the rest piece by piece.
