Meh... pull the rusty parts, well... except for those shocks, toss those...

Have them soda blasted, even the sheet metal fenders/covers, and powder coat them. There are several different formulations of powdercoat that are not poly based that will crack when the metal under them cracks, so you'll catch a crack in a stressed component just like it was a HVLP painted part.

I strip, inspect, and powdercoat all the components on the CSR and my other bikes any time I get a chance. Buy the Eastwood Hotcoat Deluxe kit and pick up a cheap used electric/convection oven off Craigslist, and you can do it all yourself with professional results.
