Good find. Make sure the track isn't rotted (shouldn't be a problem if the sled was stored with the rear end off the ground.)
also check for frozen/rusted front suspension AND the front shaft of the rear suspension. Jump on the sled and put all your weight on the front bumper, should move up and down normally.
Clean the primary clutch as well.
make sure gas in the tank is fresh, and the fuel pick-up line in the tank isn't rotted off.

check all fuel lines for dry rotting and brittleness, all idlers for free rolling, etc. give it a real good 1 over after sitting that long

I rode one of those for many years. I think the older sleds didn't have the grease fittings on the rear suspension. That's the first place I would start. Take out the rear suspension and see if the cross shafts are rusted into place. If they are and you can't get them to move, just replace the skid with a X10. The rails are also probably egged out on some of the bolt holes.

Soak the front end suspension, bolts, tie rod ends etc in WD for a couple days. These older sleds that sat around tend to seize up in all the movable areas. Front shocks probably need replacing too.

You got a heck of a deal but be aware of these and other potential problems.

Oil injectors are pretty fail proof. You dont really see them going out that much. Premixing the gas actually isnt as good as an injector. With an injector, its putting more oil into the engine with more throttle, as premix is running the same amount of oil at idle as Wide open throttle. I personally would keep the oil injector on there. what color is your classic?
