The very first thing to do even before you try to start it, is to replace the timing belts. You don not want them to break, Serious engine trouble if they do. It's not too bad a job to do it. But very inportant. Then I would change the oil and the coolant. Use Honda coolant, not automotive. The silicates in automotive can damage the water pump. I'm fairly sure your gonna have to remove and atleast clean the carbs, I would get kits and rebuild them since they're already off. There are great forums here to walk you through these tasks. looks like a great project, once you get the beast out of the pickup. I just ressurected a 1980 GL1100. And a repaint. Was my first wing. Was well worth the work. Here's a picture
