I would go over this one. So much paint is gone, engine cover not original & off color. Perfect candidate for a restore, or at least a refurbishing. Just my opinion.

I gotta agree with Daniel, a little too much of the original paint is missing to keep it original condition. There is nothing wrong of course with the way it sits now.

If you're taking votes .. I vote to restore also.
It's already been messed with so it will be much better fixed back up.
