All the bearings & bushings in the swing arm assembly are a lot of work. If the shock is original, it's overdue. Ditto for fork bushings. Probably ditto for the steering stem bearings. Wheel & sprocket carrier bearings. Clutch. The engine and probably the transmission will likely be OK. Everything else can be a project. $2k if you're handy with wrenches might be OK. Not if you have to have a shop do the work.
