Hi bikemanbob!
I think this is a good looking bike - and as a keeper, worthy of doing a few upgrades:

1) If you already like the ride, just get some alloy rims, and you'll REALLY like the ride.
2) Since it's time to replace the OE silver housings anyway, install some DT shifters. (White housing would be my 1st choice to accent the red frame.)
3) Swap out the rear DR with something Suntour - Cyclone, V-gt or even a Blue-line. (While you are at it remove the dork disk.)

^ Doing this will make it look -and feel- like a much more expensive bike.
