Subject: [CR]Old Suntour parts questions

Hi All, I recently was given a clunker of a bike. Originally purchased in 1972 for $100, it says Tiger Super Model Deluxe. It weighs at least a ton. Anyway, I see no point in keeping the frame, so I am stripping the few parts worth keeping. So far I've removed an old steel rear rack, an nice old looking Cateye rear reflector, the little tin headbadge, and some clamp on cable guides. It has pretty much all Sun tour parts. I removed the "Sprint" front derailer because of the reverse pull feature. It also has a Suntour "Honor" rear derailer, with a shorter cage. Is this worth stripping? I took off the rat trap pedals because they are rebuildable, but they weighed a lot, so those will be going to the garbage unless someone out there wants them. The brakes are Dia-Compe "Cherry" Centerpulls. Are they worth keeping? They don't look to be very good quality. The bike even had the original brake pads! Lastly, it has Sun Tour stem shifters. So, to categorize my questions. Suntour Honor rear derailer worth stripping? Dia-Compe Cherry centerpulls worth stripping? Suntour Stem shifters worth stripping? Suntour "Spirt" Front derailer worth keeping? Anything else I might want to strip? The rims are steel. Anyone want any of these parts?
