What's the oldest bike part in your spare parts box? Or for that matter, still in use?

I haven't ridden clips in like 6 years but I still have a pair of my Girvin Mag SPDs that came on my Pro-Flex back in the time. They are beat up but still work as well as they did when brand new (is that a diss or a compliment?) and I have passed up on a dozen chances to sell them. For some dumb reason these things have more sentimental value to me than the $5 I could get from a cheapskate at Veloswap.

Mine look much worse than this quick google image result...

Good question. Now I'm curious and will have to go digging soon.

my blue protec skate lid from 1994. i don't really wear it thinking i'll be safe as it's soft foam and almost worn out completely, but it has an Shred Shop sticker on it from my college days...Chicago represent!
