Welcome from Atlantic Canada, Frank. I also got back into riding after a long hiatus with a barely used 1100. Fortunately it had been ridden every season, just not a lot.
Looks like you got yourself one sweet ride there but that is one pile o'crap in your tank. I'm surprised you were able to get it started too. Those "barn finds" are nice low mileage bikes but they sometimes need a lot of care to get them back in good running condition. Sounds like you're on the right track and she'll be as good as new in no time.
