I have a Evans 531 Touring bike (19" frame, circa 92) and its in need of a re spray at the very least. I baught this for a a big tour, that I end up using my MTB for instead. It is very unlikely to get used for a touring by me again. So cant decide what to do with it, my options are

Re spray etc and keep

Re spray etc then sell

Sell as is

Swap for a racing bike

Any ideas ?

re-spray and keep it. One day you may need it. Unless you have a crystal ball on the future and will NEVER use. But you never know :?
