So, I bought it for $1800.

It wasn't in nearly as bad a shape as I was led to believe by the guy at work.

Yes, the QDs are shot, yes it needs a battery,

The inside of the fuel tank looked/smelled fine (no varnish gunk). The tires are passable and yes, I know I'll need new ones. The paint was fine. Of the time it spent sitting, most of it was in the garage, and about 1 year outside under the overhang of his roof on the north side (shady side) of the house.

I'm thinking QDs and fuel lines while I'm at it, a battery, motor oil/filter, and see if she starts. If yes, go from there.

My budget on this was $2500 so if I get her running for under that - I'm not in trouble with the Mrs, and I'll have a real live GS to ride! W00t!

I'm sure I'll have questions as I dig into this thing..... this board is awesome!
