That is a beautiful restoration.

$2000 seems a little high, but a lot of time and energy has been put into transforming what was a $200 bike with rust and missing pieces into a $2000 complete bike in what appears to be perfect condition.

The classics that appreciate are the ones that are the unrestored classics in factory new condition. If you ride this bike, expect it to depreciate over time.

Certainly if you plan to pay big money on the bike, do a careful inspection to verify things like a quality paint job. The seller should also be able to explain how it was painted & refurbished.
