I definitely wouldn't refinish that if it were mine.  I'm guessing it's OG paint, especially with the Japan sticker still on the BB.  Grab some '86 Pro Performer decals but leave the paint

Kindness is like Manure does You No Good unless You spread It around

Great find.
1) weld 990 mounts on the frame and fork, leave the burnt paint in place from the brake mount add. 
2) polish the paint and add some period correct stickers, bmx, metal bands whatever we would have done BITD
3) build it,  ride the hell out of it

If you want to restore in the future it can all be undone.  Its just metal and paint.  Make it a hardcore rider with great parts.
