Doesn't need "original" parts to sell, just needs to be super clean and ready to ride. A bike like this one is not going to sell to a collector, its going to sell to someone looking for something decent to ride, and wants that vintage look.

The only it will make sense to fix up prior to selling is if you have the time/skills/tools/access to parts/etc to rehab it. Otherwise, you will spend more on it than you will get out of it. In that case, I would just clean it really good and sell as a project. Someone with the time/tools/yadda, yadda. will pick it up, do the work, and either keep it to ride, or resell it.
