    The stem and the rack are quality....

    Looks to be in rough shape. If you convert it, you'll need to get a french threaded BB and cranks, and might have to get a new french headset if the headset was as lovingly taken care of as the rest of it. I would say convert it.
    What's the saddle, BTW?

    Not worth the effort. See if you can sell it as-is to some sucker.
