80s Miyata 310

Just picked up a 1982? miyata 310 that still has everything from the day it left the shop. its got some rust on the surface of the tubes but everything is solid otherwise. I want to repaint it but could not find any replacement decals. I assumed that since it is not a popular restoration brand then decals would be hard to come by. I had a couple other questions:
How decent is suntour VX?
should i bother with a repaint and just remove the surface rust?
should I even bother with this bike?
it fits and it was free so i assume the answer to that is yes

This is mine which I've hopefully identified correctly as a 1982 (the decals and components are different each yr).
I've turned a lot of thrift store bikes and this has been the best for me of all. The Suntour is nothing special but should work.
I hope yours works. Mine has been very nice. I've put probably 2000miles on mine.
