Clean the grime off, new cables, tyres etc as required, ride and enjoy.
Good luck getting the stem and post out , but enjoy once done
I can see a mark on the seat post where it has been moved up at some time
That is a snip at that price !
Nice. Must be mid-late 80s? To my untrained eye that seatpost doesn't look like it will take much shifting, there definitely seems to be an air of oily greasiness about the bike so I would just service it to within an inch of its life and run it as is.
Have you seen R J the bike guy release a stuck seat post with his "upside down" hammer thingy ? He almost had cardiac arrest but it worked
^^^^^He means a slide hammer. Could work for you if you can get hold of one, or even make one.
Have a look at RJs other videos on removing seat posts.
I couldn't understand why he didn't hang the frame securely upside down and employ the service of gravity on the slide hammer (thingy) !
Tried something similar once and the top section came out long before the post moved
How is he holding the bike so still
He’s got his foot on the chainring, be easier with the tyres deflated.
I found a new head badge design for you
Sure if I was swinging a 10lb slide hammer about it the bike would not be as steady as that
