Is there a way to reverse or eliminate the rust on this one?
Depends on how much disassembly and reassembly you want to do. Oxylic acid will remove the rust and is pretty gentle on other materials but it is slow. That will leave bare metal so primer and paint will be required afterwards. Or you could just wire brush it and then paint it some sort of 'rust paint' or a rust 'converter' and that should do a decent job. Or completely take it apart, get it powder-coated and then reassemble. It's all aesthetics so the choice is up to you.
