New goldwing owner, I have a 1982 honda goldwing GL1100

I recently came up on this bike and it's been sitting a good while and I believe the motor is seized up. Any ideas on what I can try?

Remove the spark plugs. Put rags over the plug holes. Kill switch off, try to crank over. Does it spin? If so and liquid comes out, gas or antifreeze? Note, liquid will shoot long distance....
Liquid in cylinders will not compress and lock the motor...known as hydrolock.
If it still will not spin over, On the left rear of the motor is a cap with a 17mm nut, remove the cap. Inside is the stator rotor bolt, use a 12mm 6pt socket and 3/8 drive ratchet, turn it righty tighty. Does it move?
