Yes, that would make a very nice ride and knowing that you have a really well made frame under you gives a lot of peace of mind. Unless you butcher it in converting to motorized, it will keep it's value and increase as years go by. $150 is a good deal. Stainless steel wool, very fine, will do wonders on that old chrome. And the old, faded paint just says out loud that it is the real deal and not a reproduction. I know that when you look at a brand new one it is tempting because they look so nice and you could get one ready for a motor for about the same price... but check the weight of the fenders and wheels, the quality of the chrome... pick up the whole bike and feel how substantial it is... just asking for a motor, I think!
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
