I agree with GR8HUNTER!
If it’s not broken don’t fix it just clean it up.
If you can remove the wood, you could clean the rust by electrolysis and repaint the runners red … I think that’s the color they typically are.

I repaired neighbors sled of similar vintage that had a broken steering arm! The original had broken lengthwise and was brittle compared to the other wooden parts. I glued the original together as best as i could and used that as a template for my router to cut a new piece out of maple.
