Repainted means just that.

Restored may or may not include repainting. The two?terms are mutually exclusive. You can repaint, but if you choose a different paint scheme then you have not necessarily restored. You can restore a bike by cleaning it up, polishing off some oxidation, and replacing decals and worn or rotted rubber components without repainting it. There is restore to usable condition, restore to original condition, etc.

Definitions of restore on the Web:

return to its original or usable and functioning condition; "restore the forest to its original pristine condition"

regenerate: return to life; get or give new life or energy; "The week at the spa restored me"

give or bring back; "Restore the stolen painting to its rightful owner"

repair: restore by replacing a part or putting together what is torn or broken; "She repaired her TV set"; "Repair my shoes please"

bring back into original existence, use, function, or position; "restore law and order"; "reestablish peace in the region"; "restore the emperor to the throne"
