repair or not

Thinking of selling my G3LS in very good order but for the dynamo do I fix it first or sell as is.

That depends to some extent what's wrong with it, from minor, e.g. dirty commutator, stuck brushes, bad connection, to more major issues; knackered bearings, burned out armature.......

Is it mag or coil ignition?
Would you remove, repair and replace it yourself (at lower cost) or have someone else do it all?
