Reusing Copper Fittings??

I have an old 1960s bungalow and I am rerouting some copper water lines. Is there a problem with reusing the old copper? I have heated up a couple of the old joints and just changed the angles on some of the old lines and continued on etc... is this an issue and should all of this just be replaced with new water lines?

You can see the condition of the piping, we can't. In general, I'm never hesitant to use old pipe but I buy new fittings.
