looks to be just dust there is no obvious signs of rustinfact the wheels look like they will clean up is it all there if so yo are half way there only got to clean it up and then the small matter of getting it to start you will be surprised how many of bikes will start after years of sitting around one of mine stated after being sitting around for five years and I have heard of them starting after much longer than that anyway good luck with your project if you need help there are plenty of us on here just ask some one properly be john will know the answer, keep us informed as to your progress

yes good compression...last on the road '98 .. load of rot round swing arm..all complete minus exhaust,aye it cleaned up all right mostly green slime ! I recently built another t80 from a bike that had been dug out of a ditch it looked like it had been there for years...good compression an goes the very best.

thanks for your interest and kind offer of help ! :)https://fbcdn-sphotos-b-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-frc3/t1/10012436_727925850585062_386252668_n.jpg
