Just wondering what folks thoughts were on wither to do it up or get it rolling again?

This was my first mtb and I've decided to use for a bit of cyclocross this winter. Initially I was going to stick it back together as cheap as poss but after a bit of reading on this site and a rummage through ebay I was considering spending a bit extra. My question is is it worth it?

Its an early 90's purple cannondale badged m500 but I'm sure later models carried a delta v tag. Paints in reasonable nick with the usual chainstay rub and a few nicks and chips here and there but basically sound. I've still got the original steel forks and the cannondale brake cam things as well as a few bits and bobs:pace/rental bar, use post .

Are these common or worth the effort?

Either way bling or bargain bucket I hope to get the dale running again, just seeing what folks think.
