Decided to not worry about the corrosion under the paint until next winter. Inside the bottom bracket looks just fine. I've had the bike out now a few times and I really like it, though my downtube shifting skills are as ancient as they are, but more rusty...

I decided to run the Rigida wheelset with 105 5600 series hubs and 700x25 tires. Swapped a new 7 speed cassette and spacer on the 8,9,10 speed hub.

Shifts wonderfully. New chain, new brake pads and new bar tape...

Still has the wheelset off my Cannondale in this pic from 2 weeks ago...

This old bike sure makes me feel fast, but I really need to consider a compact crankset or just the chainrings... I have a difficult time pushing the 53t chaining right now...
