Default Advice on what to do with a HOTROD Blast

I bought a Hotrod blast that is Blown up(dropped a valve) but this is a hotrod blast i.e. no elec. start-bump start only, PVL race ignition, Flat slide carb. clutch is hydrailic from the right side. (a factory buell short tracker prototype) the head is trash, the cylinder is a Nikosil <?spelling?> but has got some goughes. Ordered a new XB head bare and going to send it to NRHS for there stage two port work, valves and springs. the cases are NOT bored for the 600 kit so i am limited to the 515. wanted to get it running as inexpensive as possible. What does everyone think about getting started where or do i just buy NRHS 515 cylinder and piston and go on. It does have 585 cams in it as well. Wish I knew to post a picture it is a very neat bike.

Is it a frame bike? I'd love to see a picture. As for what to do with it, I suggest selling it to me for cheap .

I might suggest doing what Erik did with the last one he built...

But seriously, I’ve wondered if you could stuff a two cylinder motor in one.
