Just picked up a '72 CL350 for my first street bike rebuild. It was in decent condition but had low compression on both cylinders. I've already torn it down to the frame and am working on cataloguing parts that I need and ones that I can keep. On the list already is a new tank, seat, rims/wheels, air filter, bars, mirrors and a few others. One significant thing I'm stuck with is the front forks. I know people tend to put more modern front forks on these bikes but I'm planning on keeping the drum brakes so I'm not sure if this is my best option. The fork tubes were quite rusty but not where it compresses so I dont know how severly that will effect the bike. Any insight as to the best option for front forks??

You could try a polishing compound or scotch pads. If you take them apart, I would soak them in Metal Rescue, clen them and then polishing.
