Restoring it if it is not overly expensive makes sense. Trying to make a silk purse out of a sow's ear doesn't. Stick with similar entry level components if you do a restoration. I didn't suggest restoring wasn't a good option but probably not if it means you are going to take the bike into a bike shop to do the work. DIY is fine but labor costs are too high at most shops to restore a circa 23 year old bike and still make economic good sense.
