Before buying I'd make sure the fork isn't bent and the stem isn't frozen. Cottered cranks can be a PITA. Make sure you know what's involved in servicing them before stating this one.

With the 3 speed wheelset the bike is mostly there. I'd plan to pickup an inexpensive 3 speed bike for the brakes, pedals, and misc. Maybe set it up as an upright bar bike first just to get your feet wet and get it on the road. Then it's a riding project and you can work on sourcing the period correct parts.
