G'day Gary.
Wow mate. I'd leave all the patina and just make sure everything mechanical (motor, g/box, brakes etc) is up to scratch.
Cheers

Musky's and Scotty's 2 cents' worth would be mine too.
Beautiful thing - love the high pipes. Very similar curves to those on my P11 desert sledge - compliments from here can come no stronger than that!
Good luck with whatever you decide to do.
Bill
