That's about it but you should at least verify the engine does turn before buying anything. The easiest is to put it on the stand, rock the rear wheel while shifting it up through the gears to 5th then turn the wheel to try to turn the engine. No idea on where to get parts shipped to you. Some parts that have automotive applications you may be able to get locally, like timing belts.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.
