Need help getting my 1980 GS 750 running

Hi Y'all,
My buddy gave me this 1980 Suzuki GS750 motorcycle in the pictures below.
I know next to nothing about working on them, but want to learn.
My question is, where's the best place to start on this thing?
Before he gave it to me, it had been sitting in a barn for 10+ years.
It came to him in the same condition I got it, so neither of us know what it really needs to get running.
Is there a system of checks to go through when you get a bike like this?
I do know it is missing the seat, keys, and title.

Any help and/or ideas on where to get started would really be appreciated.
Like I said, I want to learn how to work on the bike, so if/when it breaks down on the road, I know how to fix it.
