NOS stuff just get more rare over the years. In 10-15 years how much more NOS will be left if we don't keep some of it for the future? The little NOS stuff I have, I keep. I will probably sell it some time in the future and then someone else can enjoy it then or keep it.

If you already have a YO for riding (and I think you do :-) ), why don't keep this one for future generations?
