Is this rideable?

My neighbor gave me this bike. It needs the usual attention to get it to rideable condition, grease bearings, new tires/tubes, etc. I'm wondering if it is worth the effort. I'll do it if it will ride good.
Sorry. You can't tell from the picture. It's a Nishiki Sports Special.
Last summer I found a old J.C. Higgins bike at a yard sale and thought I'd fix it. I spent time and money on it. When I was done it rode like Fred Flintstone's car. I don't want to go through that again.

Is this bike worth saving? Would it be a good rail-trail bike? Would it be ok for a 50 mile ride on the Katy Trail?
