Don't sell it unless forced to do so. I owned mine for 22 years, during which time it lived outside. A year after the sale I finally got a house with a huge garage and wish I had the bike back so I could treat it better, but TheBakemon looks to be doing a fine job with it now.

If you sell it you'll miss it, but how could you let it sit for so long? Even I would have gotten around to fixing it by now.
