The fenders are the pricey thing. I've seen the front, brand new for got $170.
Everything else I can handle, honestly. I'll be blasting the parts and I have the paint set up to do all my own paint. I honestly don't see breaking $1k on this.
A rod kit is almost $200 alone plus maybe $100 for a machine shop to press the crank apart and reassemble and true it all up. This is the heart of the engine. I am not trying to kill your project but just setting expectations having done several of these things before....
