I bought an 85 Honda that way. It was a lot of fun putting it back together. I'd pick out a part from the boxes of parts and know it was a rear master cylinder, then I would look for bolt holes on the back right where it might mount. All the stuff only fits in one place. The only part that stumped me was a heat shield for the carburetors. Routing the cables was a lot of guess work. I'm always looking on Craigs list for the next basket case. Where else are you going to find a bike that will do 108 in the quarter mile for $500?
