I've done the same with my '86 Trek 520 Cirrus. I cleaned, lubed, replaced brake shifters/hoods, retaped the handlebars, replaced the red brake cables, replaced chain, & re-packed bearings. However, I'm still looking for those original rims (Rigida 1320's) The paint job part I've left alone because in my opinion, it's too expensive to repaint it the original color (Metallic Gray) & Red. What I've found is that with a little of my wife's nail polish, I can touch up the spots that really need it. What I also did is polished up all the chrome parts and in my honest opinion, it looks great. I'm proud of what I've done and who ever said it has to be perfect.
