    Don't restore it.
    Do an oxalic acid bath, then replace all the bearings and grease.
    Looks fine as is.

    Im not doing a resto i should rephrase that im not repainting or changing much just grips and matching tires. I havnt tried the acid bath but i repacked all bearings and cleaned the chrome other then that she'll remain in this condition with just some minor fender fixing.
