this bike looks pretty re-storable. frame seems to be good. maybe a new cassette and new gum walls and you are in good shape. im sure other parts need to be done as well, but nice bike.

My first "10 speed" was the same model, colour and year - twins! I only had mine for a year when it fell victim to a bike thief when locked in front of the university library.

What a blast from the past.That could be a bike I had wayback. So original,keep it that way. Even those pedals and straps! Trippy.

It's all original except the chain (and I think the pedals...). My dad bought it new in 73. Threw it in the shed in the late 80s
