OK I am looking at a bike on eBay

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll ... %3AIT&rd=1

If I won this, I would strip it for the parts and put them on a nicer frame, and flog off the original frame.

Now a bit of an ethical delema - would you strip a classic bike just for the parts? The frame means nothing to me - but as a complete bike I recognise the value in it. Once these classic builds are broken up - they are very hard to get back to original.
