Yes. Get it running. You'd probably get less than half what it's worth in non-running shape. In the US that bike could go for $6-7000 in good running condition. I'm not sure what the UK market is like, but anywhere in the world that's a sought after bike. Also, it's not entirely stock. The entire exhaust system appears to have been replaced with a stainless system, probably from Keihan in the UK. The stock system rusts fairly easily so this is a good upgrade. The stock system is painted black. The seat looks like it may have been modified a little bit also. Otherwise, that's a very nice bike you have there.

EDIT: oh nevermind, I see you used someone else's photo.
