how worried should I be about a furry engine?

Hi guys and girls,

Looking to get my first monster and seeing some S2Rs. There's a few at good prices, but they've not had as much TLC as I'd give a monster. The result is flaking engine paint, rusting connectors etc on the engine and forks. Is this just cosmetic and mechanically everything should be fine assuming a good service history? The engine runs well, no knocking and belts have been done reasonably regularly. Would a bit of elbow grease get her back to being presentable?

Thanks in advance for your advice

My 800 S2R has suffered over the years from Winter use, at one time it was my every day bike and now its my winter hack. But it still runs really well and is a great bike to ride.
I should have sold it years ago but its to good a bike to sell considering what I would get for it.
