It is obviously an older bike and I do not recognise the name whatsoever But it looks as though you could enjoy this one- if it fits.

One thing I would do though is get the parts cleaned and lubed- and get the wheels checked out for spoke tension and true. You have no history of the bike and wheels do lose tension in the spokes- get bent in storage or even have Damaged spokes that will fail fairly quickly.

Other than that- Go out and ride it instead of sitting there admiring it.
