That's "Tange 900" tubing. And, if it's got severe surface rust - then, it's probably ready to become lawn art. Or, strip it down to a bare frame & take it to your local powder coating guy. Let them soak it in chemical strip & coat it in a cheap color. Should only cost about $150 or so. Put it all back together & ride it into the sunset. Here's a picture of an old rusted Nishiki Olympic bike that I powdercoated a few years ago.
