Thanks for the tip percy, after a quick look the decals are largely intact and overall its a 7/10 it needs a good clean and for some reason its been Run with the brakes reversed. The headset is loose and the freewheel sounds a tad dry I will ride it home and give it a sponge Bath. Nice to see the original pump still there

ok story so far, in the three breaks I have had today I have,
stripped, cleaned and regreased the headset, it wanst too bad it was dirty but the bearings and races were shiny again after a wipe no pitting.
stripped cleaned and regreased the dry sounding freewheel. when i say stripped, I left it mounted, undid the l/h thread locking ring which holds the body to the cogs. the bearings were shiny and free so i dolloped a bit of grease in and did it back up.
reversed the brake cables so I dont go over the bars when I ride it home. adjusted the toe in, the rear caliper lock nut was loose so i adjusted them both to give the correct return.
fitted some pedals.
put 80 psi in the michelin tyres, no splits or cracks.
tried the seatpost and stem.....both moved freely although there was a fair amount of surface corrosion on the seatpost so I greased it until I can get some wet and dry on it.
I will ride it home, give it a good wash and degrease and take the 'racing' numbers off.
contemplating stripping the bb but I dont really want to disturb the cranks if I can help it.
then I will take some decent pictures.
Happy days :D

yes, Im not going to change anything although saying that i have some d/a tiagra calipers spare so if the brakes are crap (which I suspect they may be) I will swap them. other than that after a chain bath I might change the freewheel and chain for reliabilities sake, or not, and ride the pants off it.
I really want to clean this one properly instead of a cursory wipe over but the guy I got it from is here tomorrow and I want him to be bowled over so Im gonna get scrubbing tonight.
any tips on getting the number stickes off without damaging the decals? they seem to be that nasty paper backed stuff which leaves loads of glue behind. Im thinking nail polish remover?

White spirit but careful. Soak a cloth and dab.
