1974 motobecane - sell as is or fix up?

All,
I own a 1974 Motobecane-Grand Record. It needs tires (sew-ups), seat and front derailleur clamp (original broken). Otherwise all original parts (except front sprocket) and in good shape. Not sure if I should buy new tires, seat, derailleur clamp and then sell or sell as is. Any thoughts?

You'll get better and smarter advice if you post on the Classic and vintage forum.
