If this is starting with boxes of unlabeled parts you should do an inventory before you worry about putting things together. Unless you are a silver spooner you'll likely want to know what it is going to cost to bring your box o' bike to running condition. Missing parts, worn bushings, bearings, seals, cracked carb rubbers, cables, chain, sprockets, tires, tubes, brake pads, all the shit I didn't think of, nor have you. Costs can multiply like rabbits and you will not get your time and money out of it. Is the engine any good, how do you know? In your budget allow $1000 shop labour for dealing with the 4 carbs and another $1000 for gear to keep you from being killed should you get it rideable. Having said all that; part it out, sell it as is but get rid of it and buy a single or twin that won't have you pulling your hair out before you even get the engine mounted.

For doing inventory it's easier to use a parts fiche one component at a time. This is a link that might have a manual if not your best to pay the $50 and get a Honda fsm on ebay.
