I see a broken ring and maybe valve collets missing?

Survey says "broken ring" is the number 1 answer. No missing collets. It's all there.

Cylinder is scuffed up pretty good. Piston scuffed pretty good from the steel shavings. The oil I drained (HD 20-50) was pewter gray with speckles. If it were paint it would be a nice color to spray on.

So the bike had a dead spot 3/4 to full throttle that would improve when I rolled off the throttle slightly. Symptom of rich. Bogged with the 200 main jet. Bought the three smaller consecutive jets (195,190,185) for tuning. On the ride from a few weeks ago where I was pictured parked with a red 883 was done with 200 jet. Installed the 190 jet and the power up in the range was improved as in it did not bog but instead the acceleration was flat from 3/4 to full and I did a highway pull for miles at 65mph and around town for approximately 40 miles total.
I believe I got greedy and ran too lean. I changed to the 185 jet to see any improvement. Rode 7 miles home on a cooled down motor. No issues seen. Next day started to ride the same route I did the first time. 15 miles in the bike bogged, came back, bogged, then wouldn't stay running. Stopped it and the kicker wouldn't move the crank to start it. The valved breather blew apart and on top of the bike and the insides were blown out (I found them on the road and wedged in the frame) oil was on top the motor.
When I got it home I let it cool down over night expecting a full seizure. Disassembled and found the piston not seized but the connecting rod WAS seized in position with the crank assembly. I got it moving barely but it it quite apparent that the iron shavings have done their damage to the bearings. Tons of play both side to side and back and forth with the connecting rod and who knows where else. Not a simple fix and I'm not an engine builder so I'm going to leave it to a professional. I'll let you all know what happens for those still interested in this funny little italian one lung's story.

yea, it's all apart
i know if you can tear it down to that level, the rest is a snap for you. if it is a pressed crank, easy-peasy.
