To be safe, just take it to your local 'pro' shop and have them give it the once over. Make sure they give the tires a close look and be prepared to replace them - 30 years of smog can do a lot of damage. I left my Allegro in the back of my car for 20 minutes this summer and both Woblers not only blew, they shreaded into bits. Thank God it happened there and not on a decent, that's all I gotta say.

If you're really really concerned, have them check the frame's alignment. It's steel, any problems can be easily corrected. You can get more info on Stella's on Dale terrific site if you're curious.
