It looks like you have a lot to work with (and a lot of work)…
The bike looks like it's complete without any major damage.
It should clean up nice.
Are you going to try to bring it back stock?

going stock would require tracking down an oem exhaust, which is likely to be tricky

Gotta put new tires and fork seals on it and change the fluids. Runs good. I'm going to clean it up a little and ride it for the season and see what happens. Going to try and keep it as stock as possible.

Be sure to check the date codes on the tires!

True - Some parts can be difficult to find, but it doesn't look like the OP needs much else.. 
I meant more "as stock as possible" as opposed to the chop/bob/destroy approach which doesn't appear to be in the OP's plans...

Good luck with the bike! 
I always liked that Blue/Black color scheme...

Jealous of your blue/black! Might be able to help with that stock exhaust problem if you’re in the Houston area though~

If you're in southern California, I have a stock exhaust in good shape I'm looking to get rid of.
