Anyone with a little experience putting their eyes on the inside of the engine be able to give me an idea how bad the wear looks to them?

Yeah, I have had a few people tell me that it will all be ok once I get everything sorted out. I think the bad part was that I just got finished doing a ton of work on the Shadow and traded for this bike that was supposed to not need anything but a bit of oil leak sorted out.
Look good! If you didn't see maintenance records whatever was said about the condition of the bike is irrelevant! Records are everthing when buying an old airhead.Still, I think you have an essentially good bike, that will run trouble free when it is sorted. Mine does.
Go far or stay home.
