76 GS750 project

Posted this in the GS appreciation thread but I think I better post here too.

Just brought home this winters project bike for the cost of renting a trailer.

GS750 Suzuki - 1976 All original except for the horns. Been sitting for 7-8 years in a barn as evidenced by the dust and cobwebs. The PO said it was running poorly and the carbs started to leak so he parked it. I have not started to do much to it yet, the weather was too nice to work on it I went riding this weekend instead. I know the carbs need some loving and the calipers are frozen, the tires are dry rotted, the cables are stiff, front forks have little or no oil in them rear shocks are original, battery is toast , bearings. Damn I got a list and I haven't even washed it off yet.

What I am hoping is that there is a forum somewhere for these old beauties that might have some technical and parts advice. Anyone know of one?

I had one of these back in the day but it was so reliable all I ever did was simple maintenance. Now I want to bring this one back to her former glory.

Thanks for any advice.

Here is the arrival:
