My detachment anxiety bike

I was the person feeling the anxiety when I found this bike abandoned in the middle of my street.  I found it in the morning with two flats and moved to the sidewalk, setting it upside down.  I was in and out of the neighborhood all day running errands.  At 10:30 pm, I made the decision to bring it back to my place.  I felt for sure that some kid left it with flats and would come back for it in the evening.  Two weeks on craigslist and no responses.  I would think that this bike deserves better than abandonment.  It is not something that I would personally buy, yet its a nice bike.  It sports an 6160 alloy frame with beefy dropouts, nice wheels and hubs, and a great crank set.  I almost want to strip it and use the crank on another project.  I cleaned it up a bit and will take it out for a ride once I get a replacement chain.  The decals are a little rough so I had been tossing the idea around of a retro.  I also have the same bars in black so paint is an easy change.  My forklifter race bars?  I might be able to justify its place in my collection then.  Any thoughts?  Ideas appreciated.  Thanks
