Thanks. It'll need new tires and probably cables and such before both but for sure.

Thanks. Next big question: should I restore this old bike I have or not? It's 40 years old. I suspect it needs new tires, tubes, cables yadda yadda...

That's a question that's best posted in the Classic and Vintage forum. Lots of knowledgeable people there. Pics of the bike will help too.
