I think your model is a water-cooled model with a radiator. Likely you have a leak in the head gasket or (hopefully not) a cracked block that is letting the coolant into the engine cylinder making all the white "steam" and stinky exhaust as the coolant burns.
DON'T CONTINUE to run/ride the bike until you fix this situation as it can blow your engine with all that water in the cylinder.
Check the oil... does it look milky or foamy... that would be confirmation that you for sure have a coolant leak into the engine. But you still could have the coolant leak even if the oil looks fine.
You can replace the head gasket if you can still find one available (you bike is a "vintage" machine for sure!) or may wish to find a motorcycle repair shop that works on older bikes. You may have to call around... many motorcycle places do not work on older bikes... check your yellow pages or google for vintage motorcycle clubs in your area... you likely will be able to find the correct place through them.
If YOU plan on trying to replace first the head gasket, and then the whole block if necessary, then please repost with that request.
Hope this helps or at least explains what is going on...
