MY new project bike

picked up this bike for 600 bucks(and another 600 in shipping from texas to ohio lol) 10,000 miles, titled, it has been laid down before, and was ridden by a guy until he went in the marines for a year. he said that when he got back it wouldnt start. turns over and acts like it wants to start but wont. i guess he said he anda friend rebuilt the carbs and it still didnt. here are some pics. please dont bash me too hard, it was 600 after all and needs some work

I can see the 1996, can't tell by the frame though.

It's easy to see, just save the picture and open in another program...

start with checking each plug, its likely they're fouled and need to be replaced, and it will probably start right up.
