Congrats on the project, it looks like you have a great bike to start with! As someone who is (finally) nearing the completion of a very similar project done in memory of a loved one, I can tell you that I think you will find it very rewarding. I've even had a few moments where I truly felt that I could feel the presence of the previous owner of my bike as I worked on it. It has been a very rewarding, enlightening, and humbling experience. I've enjoyed my journey thoroughly and hope you enjoy yours as much! I'll be watching along and will be happy to help if I am ever able.
