    I second the art of sentence structure and paragraphs. I started to try and read that then just gave up. Two year olds construct sentences better than that.

    So its pre 80..thats a start. Thus its a 79 G model. 78 didnt have 850s and any 80 or newer bike would have a standard 17 digit VIN. Most likely VM26 carbs.

    does it have a 17 digit VIN on the steering head? If yes its at least an 80. the 10th digit in the vin should be the year.

    Might not be too much left on the bone. Im assuming intakes and fork seals will need replaced. Tires are for sure junk. But i think its worth the save. But on the right day and right buyer who knows.
