This is a fine bike which is obviously in need of some work. Nice score.
Thanks .... if it fits me proper, I will get it restored and either powder coated or resprayed and rust removed and add framesaver. I paid 180 (approx $264 USD), but good used bicycles in my area of the UK cost a lot, as many people/students cycle

I will add a Son 28 dynamo hub, dynamo lights, a Garmin Edge 1000, a Gilles Berthoud handlebar bag with the Klick Fix bracket, and Gilles Berthoud rear pannier bags, aswell as a Brooks Cambium C17 saddle.

I'm planning on doing some long Audax rides with this and will also use it for my daily commute. I'm hoping that it's fairly light and similar to my Koga Miyata Road Champ which I owned (the Koga Miyata weighed under 9kg (under 19 pounds) and was a really comfortable ride, but it was 2 sizes too big for me
