KX80 rebuild

Well - out of the blue - i found a good deal on a KX80, with seized engine. 1998 im told
OK - not ideal but what the hell - im up for a challenge on a shoestring budget.
if I can get it looking fairly nice again,a nd running as well,
THEN
1. i have my first little offroader
2. i might just decide to make my SRX250 into a 2 stroke 80cc using the KX engine
3. I might start bucket racing with the KX - but that means road tyres for a KX - do you even get such?

What I love about this KX is that it is so light and simple.
pictures to follow

PS - the previous owner actually managed to wrench the piston out of the cylinder, so thats where i start from - damaged piston and cylinder.
Completely worn chain and sprockets
