1984 YZ490 project!!

I just picked this up for $550.00 ...I know many of you will say that it was money wasted because the YZ490 is a pile of crap but I think with the right mods it will be great. I am a sucker for big bore two strokes and after owning 2 CR500's I figured giving this redheaded step child a chance was my calling. The plan is to send the head and cylinder off to Eric Gorr and have the "head mod" done along with some slight porting. New plastics and seat cover is also in the works. I figured I would post up some pictures of it, I still have not seen it in person but my buddy picked it up for me and said the guy started it in 3 kicks and ran ok but not great. I should have it within the week and I am looking forward to it. Here are some pictures of it my buddy took for me. Any input from yz490/IT owners would be great.
