Spent a little time with the bike last night. Not as bad as I thought it might be.
Ordered $60 bucks worth of parts, and that should be enough to get it back to riding again.
The fuel leak is probably still going to be an issue (can't tell where in/around the petcock it is coming from, but I doubt it will fix itself), but I am no longer very concerned that the fuel may have leaked into bad places. Carbs may have started to gum up, but I'd rather see if it starts first before trying to pull and clean them (cleaning them isn't so bad, but the rubber mounts are getting old and they are pretty hard to remove).
edit: and that's what I get for being cheap the first time around. If I had just paid slightly more, I would have gotten throttle cables and a clutch lever that actually fit the bike....and I'd probably have been riding since May or so.
