Oh no, don't repaint it! At least not until you build it up properly and give it an honest go at its original self... (Do you have an idea of what crankset you'd like to install, and/or what flavor of drivetrain you feel suits the bike?)

If you build this bike up properly and then feel like the frame needs to be repainted: Fair play. Though there are people like me who can see the beauty in well-worn things, 'beausage'—if you will, and believe this bike would look properly smart being built up with good components as-is
