Be careful starting it up. It's obviously been sitting a LONG time and the cylinders are probably bone dry and possibly rusted. On member bought a "new" bike that had sat for several years on a showroom floor. Ran OK at first but then started burning oil. I would at least pull the plugs and put some oil in each cylinder. Not sure how you could get it distributed around the bore. Maybe tilt from side to side and then push it up a steep ramp. Then turn over by hand a few times.

Drain any fuel and throw it away. Put fresh gas and injector cleaner in the tank then cross your fingers and pray.
