Hey doc.
That is a sweet 48! It takes alot of restraint to leave them original and
dirty. It's like a little time capsule that you can ride.

Hard question to answer because there is something good to say about
both ways.A bike is only original once,it would depend on what you
have.Here is a picture of a 48s===still has many,many years of dust and I
won't even wash it,if anything i'll just get it started and ride it,,,now if you
have one thats been put together with different parts through the years
and has different color fenders and the wrong tank,well then you might
want to restore and find correct parts.Also depends on how long it was
sitting,the seals in the motor go bad and it won't run right.This is a
problem anyway you go. Then there is the PARTS BOOK and SERVICE
MANUALS wonderful things they are and will help you along with your
project.Post a picture of what you have so the experts can see(they are
good)and will also answer your tech.questions.
The Dr. sees alot of fun in your future,good luck
