Foreman wheels look good on it; what brand tires are they? Like the tread

pattern.

 

you looking to stop the rust or bring to new?

 

You can use rustoleum rust restore spray paint in a very small brush—spray a little on a piece of cardboard and dab it on the rust spots. then use touch up paint.

 

if you wanted to repaint, then you’ll want color code and hunt for OEM or reproduction marks. Search Partzilla or Rocky Mountain for part numbers. If they don’t have maybe set up a search on fleabay

Welcome aboard!  I think all the overseas 300's had speedometers on them.  I know @SamUK said all the ones in GB do.
