Wow, mine came from the next town over, definitely leave all OG, I have a original faded California Cruiser I'm going to post in the for sale section and cringe when I hear about wanting to strip and redo it!

I would keep it as is if it was my bike. I am keep the bike I just got in the codition as found. Just cleaning, polishing, and lube. New tires and cables will be installed though, just because the others are toast.
It is staying all original, as the imperfections in the paint give it character as to what it has been through in its life. I would like to know the story of how it got to Kansas from California though.
It has already been stripped down to the bare frame, and is starting to go back together.
