Dumpster rescue?

I'm a Philistine. I don't know what I'm looking at. Is this just an old piece of crap, or are you going auction this at a high price and then retire in The Bahamas?

This is a bike I saw on the street. Apparently it's current owner, John, stripped a bad non original paint job and didn't do anything to prevent it from rusting. Originally it had wood wheels and sew-ups, but the tires are in really bad shape, so it's been outfitted with some steel wheels and newer tires.

It's functionally pretty sound, but really ugly, so I doubt anyone is going to the Bahamas on it.
