    I definitely wouldn't have painted it unless there was rust - should be neat with a coaster though. You may consider new pedals as well, those look cheesy

    I would bet that the rear hub is completely capable of being overhauled fairly easily if it is an AW which it most likely is. if you are gonna chuck it send it to me instead
