2004 sat for 5 years

So a guy at work is selling his sister in law's bike. It's a 2004 that she bought to commute, but then moved, so she stopped riding it. It has been just sitting for 5 years. Never been started in 5 years. The good thing is it only has 241 miles on it. What would it need? Carbs cleaned, new battery, maybe tires? Check for rust in the tank? I'm not sure why I'm interested in it. Maybe I need a pregen to go with my newgen? What would it be worth? 2k? Less?
