LOL garbage... Then it makes sense that I like them. Living life with my feet in the gutter and my head in the clouds. I also like the wingnuts on the front wheel. Didja toss those too?
I did not toss the wing nuts. I tossed the AVA death stem, but kept the bars. The bars are about 20.5 inches wide.

I will be using Huret Alvit shifters on the bike. I will remove the levers from the clamp and put them on the braze on mounts.

I will not use an Alvit derailleur. Those are some of the worst derailleurs ever. The ball bearings in the jockey wheels are cool. Some people transfer them on nicer derailleurs. I don't really care about the bearings.

I will put something from the 80s on this bike.
For the front, I am planning to use a low end Shimano from the later Varsities.
I did find another Sprint crank with the BB in brand new condition.
I need to find a French stem. The bike came with an AVA death stem which was starting to fail. I don't trust AVA in general. I will go with one of those BF stems.
