86/7 Bertoni Corsa Mondiale

I am in possession of this bike for refurbishment for my daughter in
law. Essentially has no miles on it —test rides after reassembly (was shipped to me) show a very smooth ride with perfect no hands tracking. Paint is striking with just a few blemishes seen only if inspecting.

Even comes with a Vetta C300 wireless computer. Way cool. With new batteries powered right up!

What grease I have seen on the stem bolt and seat post is white (lithium?). It looks clean but I intend to slowly tear each component down and re-grease with fresh grease. Does everyone agree with this assessment? Meaning 35 year old grease even with under a few hundred miles on it should be changed out.

Note: (Not asking about what to change it out with!).

Also: the only stiffness is in the shift levers. I usually work on 70s era levers. Is the relubing procedure the same (very light lubing on all surfaces)? These are shimano 600ex/sis.

Yes, I always fully overhaul every new acquisition regardless of condition. And I very lightly grease the shifters.

It's remarkable. You can post it here after you're finished:
