A really interesting thread. I think this sub genre of cycling will endure, but it will obviously evolve over time with more modern bikes becoming retro. If you dip over to the 98+ section you will see lots of bikes and discussions on handbuilt custom Ti and steel framed steeds. These are modern bikes, but we can all probably relate to them as retro as they have the craftsmanship and traditional look of the 'original' era bikes. The recent resurgence in popularity in these frames / bikes may indicate where the retro scene could be heading. In any case, nostalgia is not what it used to be
