When I saw my first cylinders, I was surprised how shiney they were, too.

With a more mature eye, I can now see carbon ridges and imperfections, etc. We'd need a better pic to assess yours.

If you're on a budget, like I've always been, I would not worry about the bearings you mentioned just yet. I'd ride it and keep an eye/ear out, for sure, though. If you have infinite time/money, or infinitely more than me, sure, tear it completely down while you're in there. Then, you at least know what you've got when you've got it all back together.

What I did to both my resurrected BMW's was hone the cylinders and put in new rings.
