You did good for a $100. That is an excellent bike and that saddle is way coo You need some new rubber though! Those tires look tired,

Panaracer is the usual go to tire in 27 x 1 and 1/4 if you want skinwalls. IVe been really happy with the Michelin protek tires I've been using on my mid 70s Sekine SHS 272. They have a reflective stripe which I really like and they're fat. They measure 27 by 1 and 3/8 on my bike.

Your bike is beautiful. Nice job.

By the way, you may want to move the saddle back a bit but the way it is now may fit you well. Also new brakes shoes are a big plus. Kool stop continentals are very good.
