Its a 73 world tourer.. Anyways I gave it the ole buffing wheel and polish a go in a couple places and it cleaned it up a bit...But not as I would like it. I tried so super low grit sandpaper in a very tiny spot on the underside of one of the stays and it still didnt do much. Anyways there are a few rust specks here and there and there was some wheel rub in the chain stays. So I might just go the painted route.. Ill post some pictures soon, I wish I was riding it though, I just found the correct FD for it and I want to get rid of the nasty loose bearing headset with a VO probably. It was a well cared for bike I snagged it from the COOP I work at for 50$ only thing it didnt have was the original FD which I later found in a bucket of parts..
