- replaced the handlebar grip with lizard skin tape, much more comfortable, looks great and is 'similar' to the original bar tape
- I bought 27x1 1/8 instead, they are Kenda 36 from memory from Amazon around $33 for two delivered, much better looking than 27 x 1 1/4 as slimmer look is nicer
- replaced the seat with an as new but 25 year old one from another retro bike (not sure the seat in the old pics was original anyway as had 'made in Thailand' on it and looked very new underneath
- replaced brake pads with others that work well
Not sure condition of your brakes etc but they polish up OK with correct treatment
