The only thing that I can add to the advice above is that we all tend to be too compulsive about finding potential problems... as mentioned, these bikes run for a long long time, and are so easy to get back into, that I would reassemble, maybe do the cam chain, ride it to get to know it better, and you will most likely be surprised at how little it really needs....

I read a book a long time ago that made the point, over and over, that he was always worried about something breaking.... and that, in the end, the worry was always about the wrong things anyway...! Something else broke!
