    You would have a LOT to change to restore it, and that is really pointless unless you just want to restore it (that is usually my impulse as well). But good original examples are out there, and unmolested original bikes bring better money. Your bike has been molested plenty, so the originality is long gone. If I were you, I would get it running well, paint to suit yourself, and yourself only, and then make changes as you get familiar with the bike's character. No rush, it's a hobby. Have fun with it, most of all.
