10 Speed Panasonic

Several months ago I bought a 10 speed Panasonic at goodwill for my girlfriend. Its a very decent bike, the paint is in really great shape, it looks like it was not ridden much in the last 30 years. It is pretty much stock except the north bars I put on it, somebody had put risers on, which she found really uncomfortable. She is wanting a new bike, something more comfortable, needless to say I get to inherit this bike. I'm kind of wondering what I should do with it. I'm torn between making it a fg/ss or building it up to be a somewhat slick authentic 70's 10 speed (which wouldn't take much cash). What do you think?

If it's anything above a DX-2000 keep it original.
