The last time my 91 Specialized S-works steel was ridden was when it was borrowed by a 220 lb jackass of a friend. This dolt is mechanically inept and never told me the headset was loose the entire time. 1" headtube + steel frame...result? Yup, ovalized headtube.

Oh well, I never rode it anyway and just kept it around as eye candy. What should I do with it now?

A headtue repair and repaint was my first thought, but it's almost all original and has the funky green/blue/purple metallic paint.
