Looks like a good project. Forks, wheels and brakes are all available, but not cheap. But I guess you know that already. You’ll find Benellis are easy to work on. I had to totally strip my engine when I bought my bike, and it had been sitting in a garage for 30 years. I didn’t have any problem with seized bolts. I don’t think the same would be true for other marques.

Please keep us posted on your progress.
