Raleigh Technium Olympian Project

I picked up an old Raleigh Technium today. I'm not sure what year it is, but the frame is in really good shape (although a bit dirty) and as far as I can tell the components are completely stock. I'm trying to decide if I should just clean it up and replace the cables/housing, brake pads, bar tape, tires. Or if it would be a good candidate to convert to STI levers and maybe upgrade the wheels and brakes. Any advice/info/opinions welcome!
