To answer the original question : Given that a retro will be probably a tenth or less of the original cost of an original bike what is there to lose.
I've never had a full susser, never ridden a GT RTS but I just know I want one.
They look totally cool (as do a lot of early bikes).
With the radical evolution of rear suspension designs and shock technology, it hardly seems worth the effort to keep those old bikes running
It's the same with classic cars, you drive them because they DON'T drive like a new one.
