Help me I.D. this bike! Pretty please!

Bike has been hagging in my grandfathers garage for years. It was my uncles bike who used to ride this when he was alot younger in the 80's. The pad set is California Lite, orignally red put spray painted black. Rims where orginally red also, they looked anodized under neath the black paint. Say sugino(sp?) bmx on chain sprocket/ring.  Stem handle bar clamp has SR on it. Mushroom grips. Im fairly new to this so my bike terminology maybe off haha. Let me know if you guys/girls know what it is and if it is worth fixing up. Thanks for looking.

Is there any way to determine whether its a cr-mo mag or a cr-mo free? So i can start looking for the right decals original or repro.
