Nothing particular to worry about on a TY250D. Yes duck egg blue tank is aussie TY250D. All the twinshock TY250s are a solid reliable thing. Any bike sitting that long could be susceptible to some issues. If you can't hear it running and ride it through the gears yes it should definitely be less than $1000.
Motor not turned over for years can mean corrosion of the bottom end bearings. Crank seals might have gone hard but they are easy and cheap to replace.
If you can, check that it shifts gears OK because there are some parts in the shift mechanism that I've seen broken on a few twinshock TY250s. It needs an decent impact on the shift lever to do the damage.
They were popular for good reasons in the mid 1970s and are still popular now in twinshock trials competition. They are well supported with popular aftermarket parts like seats, mudguards and exhausts

The D did not come new with an ADR plate, but there are provisions for getting full road rego for old bikes that don't have ADR plates.
