This was my wife's bike, an early 90's version that I recently sold for 120 bucks (with knobbies, fenders, other extras) but you get the idea:

Clean-up, tune-up, riser bars, slick tires, fenders, and you're good to go.
As long as you don't have to replace anything. (Actually, the brakes sucked.)

They were decent frames. Can't beat an old steel hardtail
