bikes that old, that don't run, are only worth a few 100 bux at most...
they are considered to be parts sources,
hope you don't have too much invested in it?


give us an idea of what you have done so far?

Get yourself a shop manual. Get a carb rebuild kit and clean the carbs. Just do one at a time and keep things together. The starter could just need a good cleaning and the contact surfaces cleaned up. Make sure you have a new battery. Replacing tires are a normal part of bike ownership. Also replace the timing belts so all your hard work does not go to waist.

Here is a great site for carb parts for old wings. Also, go to the Tech Blog. There are a lot of great "How To's" on getting your old bike running along with the wisdom on this site.

https://www.randakks.com/

To me, these are fun projects. You learn how things work and you get the satisfaction knowing you got your bike running again. Hang in there, you can do it!!

Here is my 88 that had not run in 8 years. I had to do most of the things that you are having to do. Now I have a great running bike that is a blast to ride.

Unless you a type that has a lot of time on your hands and love working on a project to see your accomplishments and plan on keeping for a long time I would get rid of it now before you put any more money into it. Since it is an 82 some parts might not be available. If the plastic and other parts are good you can probably sell the parts. Even if you get it running it is stuill an 82 and not worth much.

If you post some pictures we might be able to better assess your situation.
$250 bucks is not that bad. Do you have a clear title??

If the body panels are in good shape you can sell them for that much, maybe more. But then you'll have a parts bike for sure.

Again, post some pictures.
