I would think you could get a nice bit of change from selling the stem and seatpost. It'll only cost $20 for a new seatpost and like $40 for a new stem.

In any case, nice find. Enjoy.

another vote for keeping it as is. That's a nice looking bike.

If you feel some kind of compelling need to upgrade the wheelset, I'd go with a nice traditional rim like the Open Pros in silver.
