How to revive faded paint on 1985 1200 LTD

I'm looking at a 1985 Honda Goldwing 1200 LTD the paint is faded . A friend who owns Goldwings said that you could try rubbing compound first and if that doesn't take 1000 grit sand paper and wet sand it provided the base cout ain't to far gone and respray clear coat on it .Which would be my best options I really don't want to paint it if I don't have to.

Maybe it's the clear coat has lost it's shine, try a small section with the rubbing paste then use Lemon Pledge on it and see if it gets a shine back.
