I picked this bike up a few years ago on Craigslist for $100. Original components:
Reynolds 501 frame
27 Matrix wheels
Dia Compe Gran Compe canti brakes and levers
Suntour Cyclone derailleurs
Laprade seatpost
Sakae cranks
Blackburn rear rack

Upgrades:
Nitto Technomic quill stem (longer)
Nitto B115 bars (wider)
Conti UltraGator tires (wider)
Brooks B-17 (wider)
Planet Bike Cascadia fenders
Generic front rack Used for loaded touring, bike camping, and errands.

All loaded up it is smooth and stable a great touring machine. Comparable features and ride to a Surly LHT only 20 years older.
