    I am a big fan of Wald 3 speed style bars. They are steel, but they are nice, made in USA, fit bar end shifters and can be had for under $20.

    Good pick up. I would put a spare right crank on it and reuse the original rings. I would fully tune it up and ride. If you don't like it sell it. You could easily double your money.

    The seatpost on that bike usually fetches a fair bit of $ on the big auction site.

    Looks nice. As a fellow tall guy, I swapped out my stem on my GR for a Nitto Technomic so I could get the bars up some.

    I had one of those for a while. My headset was toast. FYI - the headset on mine was JIS.

    You shouldn't put a lot of effort into this bike. Removing all the rust/fixing everything, will only make it a $100 bike.

    I use Sheldon Brown's method to adjust the indicator chain instead of the window method. I don't think it is possible to have the axle shifted too far to the left.

    That SA box is nice. If you had the time and inclination, you could make some folks happy by selling some of those spares on the 'bay.

    The price is fine for the bike, but I wouldn't drive 4 hours for it. MTB's from that era are plentiful. If you aren't in a rush a similar one will pop up much closer for about the same price.
