You should really use bronze wool. It's less abrasive, but still does the job.

If that seatpost is a goner, the loose clamp hardware might be of interest to folks. There are lots of those seatposts around that have lost the lower clamp parts in particular.

"Who is Rod McGreasy?"

Sounds like the beginning to an epic novel, doesn't it?

Seriously, why is the thru-top tube cable entry on the ds? That makes for awkward routing from a right aero lever.

Ask for the name on the top tube. Ask if there is a number on the bottom bracket? This bike frame was probably build at 1985/86.

Wow!

First off, you want to clean it, very gently, saving whatever paint and decals you can. Disassemble the bike and start cleaning each component.
