Smile Best Gift Ever

Hi Everyone!

I'm brand new to the whole motor bicycling scene, I was introduced to it out of no where. aha. I'm a full time college student who also works full time as a Valet driver. Due to the crazy increase in tuition I recently had to sell my car, luckily enough one of the daily drivers at the garage I work at gifted me with a motorbike!

I received it without a motor chain so the first thing I did was find a chain & try to see if I could start it. But upon removing the drive sprocket cover plate I found that one of the screws were completely stripped!

I tried looking through the forum to find out what replacement screws I should get, but I came to a dead end when I realized I have no idea what type of engine I have. aha.

So I have two questions at this point;

1) Can someone help me identify my engine? In as many descriptive words as possible would be great! so I can use the terms to do searches throughout the forum. aha. I am a COMPLETE newbie. aha. I've attached pictures.

2) Does anyone have any suggestions on what to do to get this thing into it's best shape? (I've already found the awesome list of suggestions on what to do with a brand new build kit, should I just pretend it's new & clean along the way?) aha.

Thanks in advance! This has definitely been one of the most helpful forums I've ever read through, I'm excited to get started on this project!
