I've done a couple of mid-70s Le Tours and they are pretty much bomb-proof. Replace the brake blocks (they are probably dried out and hard), tires and possibly cables & housing. Other than that clean it, lube it, adjust it and ride it. I had good luck cleaning the chrome with wadded up aluminum foil.
