You bought it!!! Sweet bike.
I've had good luck wiping down with mineral spirits, then using a cleaner/wax like Maguires.

Good question!
This how I received it. The original owner was shorter (5'-10"?) than I expected for a bike this size. I have big plans for it, as it's one of the few made with Columbus tubing.
