I picked this up at a garage sale today for $30 as a potential campus bike. A couple of questions:
Where can I find the serial number, and how can I read it to date it? I checked the bottom of the frame but didn't see anything.
What should I do about the rust? Most of the detail pics I've included are of rust spots. Should I clearcoat them with some nailpolish and leave them be? Would you worry about any of them?
Finally, I noticed that some of the outer rubber of the tire has come off (note the wheel shot). I assume it's living dangerously to continue riding on these, n'est pas?
Thanks for all your help!
