I'd lighten it, Get rid of the carrier, kickstand.
Toss the brakes and get some sidepull cantilever. Shimano-$40 pair. The levers MIGHT work, but sometimes you need the right/more pull levers.

Better brakes, 2 pounds off the bike, probably feel way nicer.

Because it's older and Alu, I would'nt go for any mods really. Just brakes and those you can use again on a different bike later.

Kinda looks like rust on your chainrings, if? steel wool them clean and hit 'em with clear coat enamael spraypaint. Chain rust? replace.
