And yet you bought a bike that has been severly neglected.....with parts missing no less. And that is just the part that is obvious; other things might be missing too.
Not a good move, probably.
Do you even know if the engine will turn over ??
Keep the intake coverd or plugged up until the manifold arrives.
Aside from that, bike forums abound with advice on what general steps to take with a bike that has been in storage for a LONG time.
Do a little searching, please.
There may not be a thread like that here because this message base was restarted from ZERO a few months ago. Maybe someone else will take the time to cover it all yet again.
