Yes, the chain needs to be replaced. Not only is it rusted, but there are frozen links. A new 6/7/8 speed chain is $8-$10.

If those truly are tubular rims, you cannot use clincher tires and tubes....

I'll weigh in on a few things

Yes, repack hubs, bottom bracket and headset. The last of those three will be the most difficult.

Brake pads matter. I recommend Kool Stop salmon pads.

I meant that it's doubtful that workouts "blast the plaque out." And if they did, it's a stroke when that blasted plaque finds its way to the brain. I'm sure there are different schools of thought....
