If I had this dilemma w/ the Raleigh Pro, I would sell the Pro & do one of two things #1) Buy 2 or 3 very nice vintage bikes to ride or #2) buy one very nice, more exotic vintage bike to ride (ie Rene Herse or Alex Singer etc).

Probably would do #2 & let the guy who bought the Pro worry about whether to ride it or not.

Probably I'd go for #2
