Here's a pic of mine.

a work in progress.
In the past 3 years I have rekindled my taste for the dirt and picked up one of my old steeds which hadn't seen too much action since the late nineties.
First things to replace were the Bonty racelight handlebars, shocks, front brake (stuck a front disc on), and new wheels, then a snapped ritchey seatpost (anyone got a nice black 27.0 going?)......
eventually the only original parts today: rear shifter, derailleurs (fr & r), saddle and seatpost clamp.
It was brought back from the dead by a mate of mine in December who managed to get the "15 years old and never touched let alone looked at" steel bottom bracket out of the steel bottom bracket shell. The two pieces had fused into one, it was scary
Much Plus gas/liquids and brute force later things worked out ok.
I see it like the equivalent of a successful hip operation
-back on the trail again!
