Buy some SEAFOAM and put it in the tank and in the Carb Bowl, it will clean the varnish that has built up over the years and clean the system. you can get it at most Wal Marts or at Avance Auto Parts. About $8-9.00 a can but worth every penny and more. Use it regularly, once a month to keep it running like new and clean. Lots of help on here to get her running. My 1993 sat for 10 years and I got it going in no time with the help of this forum. Did the spine lube and other assorted stuff and it is running like new!
Congratulations, you were given a special bike that will you absolutely will love riding.
