Hey BF. Was on CL this morning, and picked up a Scwhinn Prelude for $80. It's an older bike, but I cant find out exactly how old. I've asked Google, and it can't help me. The Serial Number is on the Bottom Bracket, and is C732595. Its got a 53 - 42 front crank, and a 22 - 13 freewheel. It has alot of surface rust, and some of the components are rusted as well. It has Wolber rims, and shimano 600 hubs, along with Shimano 600 everything else; both deraileuers, brakes, brake levers, crankset, etc. It came with a pair of bike shoes with the cleats and pedals. I took them off. I prefer flats.
If I tear it down, sand the frame down, and paint it, do you think it would be worthwhile? The components do have some rust, but I think they would be reusable. Pics included.

Edit: Sorry about the Serial Pic. Alot blurrier then I thought.
