Many thanks for all your help and insight. It does, in fact, weigh a ton: precisely 44 lbs. The brake pads are miserable, thanks for the tip Pat. I had no idea about the fenders or the generator - I may just want to get rid of the latter; I feel like a proper LED light with Lipos may fit the intended usage better. Now with the bar tape, how big of a no-no is it to replace what's on there with something moderately soft and comfortable, like modern bar tape?
Oh, and it also had a Schwinn speedo/odometer on it (something like this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/VINTAGE-SCHW...-/151054305894 ), except it's unfortunately missing the part that goes into the front hub. Is that something worth trying to sell?
