Default 1974 vintage Airtronics Olympic II kit advice needed

I have an Airtronics Olympic II sailplane kit I bought new in 1974 that's been sitting on a shelf in my shop ever since. I originally intended to build it for Hi-Start launching but now I'd like to go electric. Can anyone offer suggestions for motors, props, batteries, etc? Also, are there any air frame modifications I should consider? Does balsa strength deteriorate with time or should it still be OK after nearly 50 years in a temperature controlled environment?
