No doubt I'm late to this discussion, but I say leave it alone. Clean it up, wax the frame, fresh grease in the bearings, cables and housing if necessary, and ride it!. If I had the cashola I'd outbid y'all.

Taking advantage of the clear photos in this auction what would you do if you ended up being the buyer of this bicycle as far as cleaning it up/preserving it? Areas I'm particularly curious about would be the rust on the top tube and the chrome deterioration on the stem/front brake hanger. Assume it will not be a wall hanger but be brought out for rides on special occasions.
