I think the best thing you can do is sell the bike for whatever you can get. When you're ready to ride again buy a nice modern new bike. Or, I can come and get it and ride it for you keeping it from getting all moldy inside and out.I'm considering putting the bike away in storage for 3-5 yrs - what is the top ten list of things to do to best preserve it? It's a 2002, ~15k mi, did 12k mi service couple yrs back. No known issues, electrical or otherwise.
