Need some pictures and close ups to assess the task he is proposing. New mufflers, rims, clutch, valves, guides, pistons and bore your well over $1000 in bits alone if not more for original NOS stuff. If he wants it running and will deal with rust then the head at least should come off and barrel so you can check bottom end for play and measure.
