I picked up a pre-unit Triumph rigid frame for cheap. It has surface rust in the neck and possibly the backbone/down tube. Should I have it acid dipped?

No, just remove the rust on the outside. If the tubes are slightly rusted inside, it serves no purpose to remove it.

I agree just leave it alone. Stripping it will only open the pores of the steel to rust again. Unless you can seal the metal. All in all that is alot of work to remove some rust. Just my 2 cents.
