You deff have the time now!!! (sorry)
Start by pullng the head and barrel off (hoping that its only the barrel and piston that are wrecked and not the cams, bottom end, crank etc)
Let us know so we can help..
It does sound like you have a major on your hands though.

i'm guessing that the big end has locked up first & that the piston & barrel will just be in a very worn state.
if they nikasil the barrels on these you can give the barrel a hone & try a new piston. a little line in the barrel honed over should see you saving a couple of bob here.
if it's a steel liner then i bet it's time for a rebore. if both cylinder/piston & crank have gone there is a silver lining; get yourself the upgraded rod to go with that 450cc conversion you always wanted!
over here in england when this happened to my old duke i used to have the crank reground & when i did a big one on the big end have it welded up & re-nitrided.

your barrel is plated & you should be lucky
looks like piston + rings then (dont forget the oil)
