what a lot of the vintage repair guys have started doing is stocking up on all the regular wear parts they can. It will make servicing pricey, and the vintage market is going to shoot up even more now.

Also, the fake vintage (Redials, Faux Aging, AM parts, etc) are going to be much more prevalent now. Anytime you buy a vintage piece, be very cautious with it.
