Got this maybe ten years ago and rode it as is with band on shifters and a mishmash of mostly golden arrow. I loved riding it and was pretty rough looking so never got stolen...

What would you do with it. I'd love to have it repaired and resprayed but im thinking with all the chrome I could spend A LOT.

it's got several dents, the rear derailleur hanger has been sawn off and one of the DT shifter bosses is stripped. I always felt slightly cramped on it but I ended up with moustache bars and was very comfortable.

Any info on the serial appreciated.

If it’s of sentimental value then just get the needful repaired only frame polished only then lacquered then ride so it still looks rough….

Sorry i don't exactly understand what you mean when you say polished and lacquered?

Also do you mean if it's NOT of sentimental value then it's not worth fully renovating?

Well I went at the chrome forks with aluminium foil but the chrome is definitely well pitted and cannot be polished back to glory...
