Motorcycle restoration

My dad has an old(1949) Harley sitting in a shed. It has been there for some 20-25 years It was in good shape when it was put there, but it obviously needs a thorough cleaning, probably replacement gaskets, maybe reapplication of chrome and such.

I'd like to get it fixed up for his Christmas present. How much could I expect this to cost? The only functional deterioration would probably be some gaskets and maybe some filters, its mainly cosmetic problems from being in a not too clean storage area for over two decades. On the other hand, being so old even minor part replacement could cost a fair bit of money, they probably don't make most of the parts anymore making special order much more expensive.
