I have one of each so I'd say my preference is both. This 64 was found with a load of patina, including wrinkled paint from a leaking tank. An unpainted eBay tank led me down the painting path and this modified, well running bike was the result:

I think of this 64Triumph as a resto-rized bike. Modern parts hidden inside with mostly period correct parts outside. Then there's this one, bought as a non-running specimen and adapted to suit. 1972 Patina galore and purpose built not to be shiny:

Take your pick. Both are always going to be works in progress. I like museum pieces, too. And rat bikes....
