Check the wheel rims. Some bikes have rims worb thin through wear (braking) and have become dangerous.

WhenI was a young lad there was a council tip near me where the "bin lorries "used to tip their stuff.On site was the "caretaker ? --a little old man named Aurther Keeling who used to sort out the old bike bits/pram wheels (go carts ) and any other interesting bits (to kids like us anyway ).After school me and a cou[le of mates would go up and collect the said bits to build bikes (nobody had a new one as I know ) and "go carts.Justup the road from me on the way was (still is ! ) a hairpin corner side of the wood.When the wagons from Croxden gravel came round we would jump out the side and hang on the rear tipper bar until the next corner Wagons were a bit slower then.

Most things from the 70s was built proper and made to last, not like today's throw away society trash, you may have got an odd exception which you have highlighted.
