luxtub tubing

I am about to acquire an old Mercier 100 for free. It is in excellent shape. Is the frame, made with the luxtub tubing, worth putting on some newer rims and using it as an all purpose bike? Thanks

That is totally up to your needs and the depth of your wallet. Shop around for used wheels and pick up some new rubber and have fun ...
